Club Rides

Riding is at the core of the Cycle Club experience. The London Cycle Club is located centrally so we can enjoy some incredible riding whichever way we head out of London.

Rides happen regularly with longer club runs on weekends, including a women’s ride, and weekday morning and evening spins around Regent’s and Richmond Park. The weekend rides all start and finish at the Cycle Club and the weekday spins meet at the parks. Follow @raphacycleclub for the latest information and for sign up details for the weekend rides.

Women’s Tempo Ride

The first and third Saturday of each month.

Every other Saturday our Women’s Tempo Ride heads out from the Cycle Club into the Home Counties, on mainly quiet and less-travelled roads (once outside London). The ride is a faster tempo ride which is for more advanced riders. Meet before the ride at the Cycle Club for a bite to eat and to meet the other riders and ride leaders. When you register for a ride you’ll receive a confirmation email and further details of the route and rules of the road. If you’re looking for more rides and different group speeds, have a look at our other Cycle Club Rides.

  • The Ride: A pacey training ride for more advanced riders. The group will maintain a pace of around 25kmph with minimal stops. Takes place on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month.
  • Distance: Approx 100 – 120 km and will only wait for a mechanical.
  • Pace: Our Women’s Club Ride averages 25kmph.
  • Terrain: All routes use quiet B roads and country lanes where possible. There may be occasions where the group rides on busier A roads especially when entering and leaving Central London. In bad weather conditions the route may be amended, for instance opting for main roads if there is likely to be ice.
  • Availability: A preregistered limit of 10 spaces, led by Rapha Ride Leaders.
  • Meet at 9.00am.
    With a smooth run the ride will be back at the Cycle Club approx. 2.00pm – 3.00pm
