Third and final public consultation on The Royal Parks’ Richmond Park Movement Strategy

The Royal Parks’ Movement Strategy was published in February.  As part of the Movement Strategy, they have been running six-month trials in six of the Royal Parks. They want to hear the views of the people who use these parks and have an interest in these trials.

What has happened in Richmond Park?

  • Removed all cut through-traffic on the eastern side of the park
  • Closed the vehicle link between Sheen Gate and Sheen Cross
  • Created new park space on weekends by removing all unauthorised vehicle traffic between Richmond and Roehampton Gates
  • These roads remain open to all park users on foot or cycling
  • Car parks remain open through access from closest gates
  • People who were not using the park, just cutting through it,  have not been able to use these roads in this way

Have you say on these changes by completing the consulatation survey:


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.
