Women on Wheels

Women on Wheels

A monthly social ride of about 10-12 miles for women living in or near Kingston. Particularly aimed at less confident cyclists and those returning to the saddle after a gap for caring or work responsibilities, but you must be able to ride on public roads. Rides keep mostly to quiet roads with a coffee stop half way and each ride is led by two qualified cycle instructors. Have a look at their album here, to see pictures from previous rides.

Women only, of all ages, able to get to central Kingston with your own bike.

We meet in Kingston at the Falling Telephone Boxes outside Wilkinson's at the end of Old London Road. We cycle out along the Thames towpath or to parks along quiet roads.

The last Sunday in each month (except August) whatever the weather except December, starting at 10am and returning about 12.30 to 1pm. This Year's Scheduled rides can be found in our Events Calendar here.

There is no cost except for buying your own refreshments at a cafe.
Booking is not essential but new members are advised to email Eric the week before coming.

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.
