Kingston Cycling Campaign

WHO:
We are the Kingston Cycling Campaign (KCC), the local group of the London Cycling Campaign. We are an advocacy group promoting cycling and campaigning for improved cycling facilities such as cycle paths, lanes, cycle parking and crossings. We promote cycling in the borough by:
  • liaising with the Council on the provision of local cycling facilities, courses and routes
  • organising a varied programme of rides
  • providing "Dr Bike" sessions to advise people on the condition and safety of their bikes
  • providing local cycling information for members and a means of reporting abandoned bikes and incorrect signs. 

WHAT: 
We organise more than 20 bike rides each year. Most are leisurely day rides stopping at a pub or cafe for lunch. We also arrange some half day rides and more challenging routes out into the Surrey Hills. Inexperienced riders are encouraged to join us on our leisurely rides and all are rewarded with a slice of bread pudding at the end! We cycle on roads, choosing routes away from traffic where possible and make use of shared paths in parks and towpaths.
 
RESTRICTIONS: 
Our bike rides are suitable for adults, and may be suitable for older children who are confident and sensible riders. Children aged sixteen and under must be accompanied by an adult. Please contact our ride leader in case of doubt.
 
WHERE:
Our bike rides typically start at 10:30 on selected Sunday mornings at the Market House in Kingston’s Ancient Market, KT1 1JS. See details of our rides at our website www.kingstoncycling.org.uk
Our monthly campaign meetings happen on the second Tuesday each month at 20:30 at the Wych Elm public house, Elm Road, Kingston KT2 6HT. This is a chance to discuss promoting cycling and discussing proposals for network improvements.
 
WHEN: 
Rides take place on selected Sundays throughout the year and on selected Wednesday evenings in the spring and summer. See CycleKingston's Calendar of Events for dates and times.
 
HOW MUCH: 
All our bike rides are free of charge. You do not need to book. Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings.

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