Breeze Bike Rides in Lambeth

This is a pretty ride starting on Clapham Common, then via quiet residential streets to Brockwell and Dulwich Parks, where we can enjoy some traffic-free cycling.  There are great views over London from the top of the hill in Brockwell Park.  We’ll head back to Clapham Common for our end of ride coffee at the Bandstand Cafe.


There are two gradients along the way, but nothing very strenuous.  The ride is all on tarmac so suitable for road as well as hybrid bikes, although need to take care with some potholes in Brockwell Park. 


It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack.  Wearing a helmet is advisable, but not essential.


Please bring some money if you want to buy refreshments and wear lots of thin layers if it’s cold.


Look forward to seeing you there!

Meet the Champions

  • Judith  Kent Judith Kent When I hit 40, I got my family to buy me my first bike in 20 years so I could start commuting to work - with two small children at home it was the only way I could see to get some exercise into my daily routine.

    With the kids a little older, I then found I loved the cycling and wanted to do more - but got a bit bored going out on rides by myself. So I trained as a Breeze Champion and have really enjoyed getting out and exploring the parks and commons of South West London in company with other women.

    My rides start on either Wandsworth or Clapham Common, are always at a gentle pace, fit within school hours (for juggling mums like me) and finish with coffee at a local cafe.

    My profile picture shows me crossing the finish line at the Cycletta sportive on the Sussex Downs in September 2012. Five of us (complete sportive novices) from my regular Breeze rides thought we would give it a try, and we all made it round the 25 hilly miles.....what a sense of achievement.....Breeze rides can take you to unexpected places...!
