Portsmouth Road family fun day this Saturday!

Kingston Council is celebrating the completion of improvement works to Portsmouth Road and Queen's Promenade as part of the Go Cycle scheme with a family fun day.

Over the past 15 months the council has been transforming the one mile stretch of road, and to mark the completion of the Portsmouth Road works and the arrival of spring they are hosting a Portsmouth Road family fun day.

Where: Portsmouth Road (next to the Riverside Cafe)
When: Saturday April 22, 2017
Time: 10.30am to 2.30pm

The day will include activities such as face painting, a bike market and penny farthing displays to celebrate the rich history of cycling in our borough. There will also be guided bike rides with the Go Cycle trainers, so bring your bikes and don't forget a bike lock.

Find out more about the events planned for the day.

Become a cycling instructor

If you love cycling, you might consider becoming a cycling instructor. Whether you would like to make it a full-time job or you just want to pass on some skills at your local school or youth club, undertaking the National Standard Instructor training is the first step.

Kingston is the only London borough recognised as an instructor training organisation (ITO). Since 2007, we have trained more than 300 instructors for local authorities and independent providers.

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on info@cyclekingston.net with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
