What we're about

Welcome to Richmond Scenic Cycling.

Come and join us and explore some of the forgotten places that are really quite accessible. We mainly Cycle on a Tuesday and therefore generally attract an older age group of 50+ . We often cycle along quiet roads and canal paths occasionally stopping to enjoy the views. On other occasions we use our road bikes and do a 50 mile round trip at an average speed of 14 mph, we also take on steep hills and therefore all cyclist joining these rides need to be pretty fit.

This year we have a subscription only membership. This membership is for a 12 month period and costs £15 payable via PayPal at jthearsum@yahoo.co.uk. In order to join a ride you must have first paid this fee. Therefore I should mention at this point that we are quite over subscribed. We only cycle on a Tuesday and only have a total of three leaders, therefore at best there are 18 places but often only 12. Once a ride is announced the places are usually taken within 20 minutes, however as we are now subscription only our membership number of around 170 is misleading and I am confident that the active group will only be around 25 paying members.

So this is a group for people who are quite competent riders, who wish to ride regularly and combine exercise with companionship. We have been going for six years now and meet every Tuesday throughout the year. Of course the pandemic has stopped our meetings for the time being but we will resume as soon as we are able.

If you feel this group is for you please sign up and we all look forward to meeting you.

A few indicators to help us all enjoy the day -

Please check the exact description of the ride and only sign up if it is within your comfort zone.

Come prepared, bring water and all that is required for a puncture repair.

Please wear sensible clothing both in terms of the weather and your own visibility.

Whilst cycling - please do not overtake the lead rider and always keep a safe distance behind the rider in front. However, huge gaps between riders are not ideal as we communicate up and down the line.

All riders must wear a helmet.

Cycling is a potentially dangerous sport and ALL RIDERS RIDE AT THEIR OWN RISK.
