Online Mapping and Route Planning

Bike Citizens Route Planner:               
More and more people are using smartphone navigational apps to help them find the best cycling routes. If you are interested in using an app on your phone to navigate, RBK have partnered with Bike Citizens to distribute their cycle navigation app and universal smartphone handlebar mount for FREE. The mount, known as a Finn comes with a code that allows you to download the local area map, covering the whole of the Greater London Area. To get your FREE Finn, just email:   

Bike Citizens also provide RBK with data on cycle journeys around the borough. The data allows them to see which are our most popular cycle routes, where local cyclists are coming from and going to and is of great help in planning Kingston’s future cycling infrastructure. So the more of us use the app, the better the data will be!

The app has some useful extra features:

  1. There are local cycle tours already loaded onto the map which you can choose to follow
  2. The app records and displays how far you have gone, average speed, number of journeys etc.
  3. You can easily share your achievements on social media.
  4. The app automatically recalculates should you stray off your route
  5. You can choose easy, balanced or fast routing and can also specify your type of bike


TfL Journey Planner:                           
Transport for London (TfL) have produced an interactive online journey planner which now supports cycling journeys and generates route maps, found here.

Kingston is on Route 4 of the National Cycle Network which stretches from London to Fishguard in South Wales. You can view the route on Sustrans excellent maps here.


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.
