Ride With Us

 

Rolling into Winter. 2 rides a week – whatever the weather brings. Still more fun than riding indoors.

Friday Cafe Ride – meet at the shop at 10.00. Friendly road bike ride with a focus on good coffee stops and learning basic group riding skills. Back to the shop by 14.00. All weathers, all year round.

Sunday Surrey Escape – head for the hills ride at 08.00. Usually need to back by 12.00 to open the shop but we’ll occasionally stay out longer.

Friday & Sunday shop rides have their own What’s App group and we try to post a route the day before.  Come along for a ride and we’ll add you to the list for the next one.

Every ride includes a coffee stop and plenty of chat along the way.

Tips for group riding Richmond Cycles style:

  • 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

Note – All rides are adult only and each rider is responsible for his or her own personal safety at all times.
