Local rides and cycling groups
There are plenty of cycling clubs based around the borough; not all are racing clubs and many run led rides for beginners or those coming back to cycling.
The following list is a selection of local rides and groups currently available. Further information can be found on their external websites, provided below if available.
Women on Wheels (WoW) - Suspended (Pending TfL funding)
Rides are organised on the second Sunday of every month.
The ride is a great opportunity to gain confidence on your bike in a fun and sociable environment. Led by experienced Sutton Council cyclist instructors, the ride lasts for two to three hours and takes place in quieter routes at a leisurely pace. It includes a refreshment break.
Meet at 10am outside the Honeywood Tearooms & Museum, Honeywood Walk, Carshalton SM5 3NX.
Registration and pre-booking is required. Please register with Women on Wheels and then once you have registered you will be able to book a place on a ride.
