Join us on the Njinga Santa Charity Cycle!

Join over 100 cycling Santas for Njinga’s Charity Cycle for the Shooting Star Chase Children's Hospice.

Njinga Cycling are hosting their 6th Annual Charity Santa Cycle on Saturday 1st December starting in Richmond.

After the huge success of their 5 previous Santa charity cycles, they are back bigger than ever this year once again helping to spread the Christmas joy to all the children at the Hospice.

On Saturday 1st December from 08h00, the Njinga led Santas will be cycling a social and relaxed 20km from Whole Foods in Richmond to the Children’s hospice in Hampton, delivering 100s of presents to the deserving children who won’t be able to leave the hospice over the Christmas period. The group will then be led back by the reindeer ride captains to The Turks Head in St. Margarets for complimentary post ride snacks and refreshments along with entertainment from a live band.

Join Njinga Cycling this Christmas and help spread the joy and festive spirit to the children of Shooting Star Chase Hospice. Entry is FREE, each rider will simply be responsible for buying at least one present for a child and should wear a Santa suit.

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.

You can read more about our training here, and learn more about being a Bikeability Instructor here

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 with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
