Sky Ride Local in Wandsworth

If you're fairly confident on your bike and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, our Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills along the way, rides take place on mainly quiet roads with plenty of sights along the way. Rides are between 6 and 20 miles long, at a moderate pace of between 7 and 10 miles an hour.

A lovely seven mile ride on the Tamsin Trail which circumnavigates London's Richmond Park. You'll find a surprising array of wildlife on the way in this Royal park, with cafe stops available at both Roehampton Gate and Pembroke Lodge. While mostly flat, the ride takes place primarily on compacted shale tracks, meaning hybrid or mountain bikes are advisable.

  • John Shipp Tuesday 25th October In a very busy Park the leaders were great in arranging a really good ride - a very mixed group of riders and they did very well. Many thanks. I ride most days, so I guess it was a bit slow for me, however, I got see this lovely park.
