Our Shop Rides

 

Bi-Weekly Thursday Evenings:

We will be alternating between road rides and gravel rides so there's something for everyone. Rides will leave from the shop at 6:15pm, do feel free to head down for 6pm if you need to grab some snacks or any spares.

All rides are a no drop ride, and while the group may split on steeper hills, the group will always re-group in full so please come along no matter your ability.

The routes will vary, but will always be relatively local so you'll never be far away. Sometimes in Richmond Park and others some local loops we have in mind around Richmond. Post ride pizza, beer and bike chat is available for those that want to stick around (numbers-dependent).

Richmond Cycles invite adults only to ride with us, free of charge. Your safety on the ride is entirely your own responsibility.
Please read and follow the guidelines below to help us all keep safe on the roads.
  • Ride two abreast and at your discretion move to single file (be courteous to other road users- narrow/busy roads single file may be safer, faster moving traffic can get past a shorter group of two abreast more easily)
  • Riding close to the person in front gives the benefit of less drag, but only ride as close as you feel comfortable
  • Stay relaxed but aware of those in front and behind
  • Don’t make any sudden acceleration, movement or break
  • Move out in plenty of time to avoid road hazards and so others can follow your line
  • Keep pedalling-soft pedal rather than freewheel
  • Maintain a steady speed
  • At times it may be safer/better to split into two or more smaller groups and regroup as decided
  • On hills, give riders more room as they are more likely to slow or move off their line
