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.
