All rides are managed via WhatsApp so just drop us a line to be added to the group.
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.
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
