Cycle Richmond to Guildford

Please join us on what promises to be a lovely, picturesque and scenic cycle from Richmond to Guildford through many beautiful parts of Surrey.

Here is the plan for the day;

1) Meet outside Richmond Tube Station

2) Cycle to Guildford

3) Lunch in a nice country Pub in Guildford

4) Cycle back to Richmond

The total mileage including the lunch stop will be approx 55 miles.

Road bikes,hybrids with slim tyres or Cyclocross bikes are strongly recommended for this ride.

Mountain bikes will not be suitable.

Our average cycling speed will be approx 13mph, which translates as approx 15-18mph on flat roads and approx 7-9 mph up hills.

No one will be left behind, however if you are struggling to keep up then we will escort you to the nearest station.

Helmets and lights will be compulsory.

It is strongly recommended that you carry a spare inner tube in case of a puncture, every week someone has a puncture! Also a good lock for when we have lunch.

In terms of difficulty from (1-5(hardest)), we would categorise this ride as difficulty level 3.

For those cyclists who do not wish to do the whole route there will be some train stations along the route, so if you wish to join us for part of the ride and then take the train back home, you are welcome to.

If you are not sure that you will be able to cope with the speed and the distance please email Suki for some advice.

This meetup will be weather dependent so 12 hours before the event begins if heavy rain is forecast then the event will be cancelled, please check the website the evening before the event begins and also a few hours before the event begins.

Please do not put your name down unless you are serious about attending. If you repeatedly put your name down for rides and then pull out or don't show, you will automatically be put on the waiting list for future rides.

    Excellent day out and a big thanks to everyone in the group. The lunch stop by the river was a great call too. I am really feeling (well my knees anyway) the after affects of the increased pace with Eilish and Penny for those last few miles. Thanks Suki for organising the day.

    Nice to see you Suki again! 5 starts to your patience with us :) Guildford riverside never disappoints. I really enjoyed the fast sprint with Eilish and Patrick in the end after many "waiting" stops

    Sorry I'm going to drop out as I'm still getting to grips with my new road bike and not up to speed as I'd hoped when I originally responded

  • Sean O.

    Gonna dip out of this one because I suspect it may be too fast for my hybrid. Have booked onto a slower ride the day after. Enjoy.

  • Maria B.

    Been wanting to join for a ride for some time but always get nervous riding out with a new group and I've also got a new bike. But this will hopefully give me time to adjust to it before joining you all!

  • Daniela

    Great this one is rescheduled! Guildford is a lovely place!
