South Western Road Club

The South Western Road Club (SWRC) was formed in 1930. Based in South West London the club has grown steadily but still has the capacity to take in new members. If we had a motto, it would be 'We just want folk to enjoy riding their bikes as much as we do'.
The strength of the club is the popularity of our club runs, perhaps because we are fortunate enough to have club run leaders who know every lane in Surrey, Sussex and Kent.

These days the club caters for all types of cycling and cyclist.

As many as 70 riders regularly turn up on Saturdays at Cobham car park to be split into 5 groups, setting off by 9.30am and with average ride speeds varying from 14 mph to 20 mph. 
We started a beginners group a couple of years ago and they are now all accomplished riders, so we have decided to set up another beginners group, catering for hybrids, mountain bikes or road bikes. The distance will be approx 20 miles and we will ride at the speed of the slowest rider. There will be a coffee and cake stop and riders will be under no obligation to join the club.

New riders are welcome to join our club rides any Saturday, or our midweek rides. Lots more ride details can be found here. Your first few rides are free, after that, membership details can be found here.
And for more information you can email us here.
We look forward to meeting you!

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.
