Wandsworth to Wimbledon Windmill

Friday 12th October 2012 at 10.00am This is what time the ride will set off. It’s best to get to the starting point at least 15 minutes beforehand to avoid missing the start.

Starting Point & Postcode
Wandsworth Common, Bolingbroke Grove, Wandsworth, London, SW11 6HN  SW11 6HN
Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
1 hours 30 mins  (1 hours 30 mins cycling)

Guided Rides Great routes and support from trained leaders


Breeze Bike Rides in Wandsworth

We'll meet on Wandsworth Common, opposite the Bolingbroke Academy building site on the corner of Wakehurst Road and Bolingbroke Grove for a fun 9 mile ride including 2 parks and 2 commons, with one steep hill! 

We will cycle over Wandsworth Common, then through back roads down to King George's Park in Wandsworth, where we will follow the Wandle Trail briefly, before taking quiet residential roads to Wimbledon Park.

From Wimbledon Park, we will take back roads up to Wimbledon Common - there is one steep hill here where we may have to push our bikes for a few minutes!  Then we enjoy a lovely off-road section on (non-tarmac) bike paths on Wimbledon Common, past the Windmill to Wimbledon Village. 

From the Village, we will cruise gently back downhill, through Wimbledon Park, and via quiet roads through Earlsfield and back up to Wandsworth Common, after which we will end the ride with a cafe stop.

Hybrids and mountain bikes are best for this ride, due to the off-road section on Wimbledon Common.  Make sure your tyres, gears and brakes are all in good order to keep safe on the hills!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Judith, Michelle and Jill

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, 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.....since then a number of our Breeze riders have done other longer sportives and London to Brighton....others prefer to stick to gentle rides at a gentle pace and enjoy seeing some of London's sights along the way.....there's something for everyone....

    Michelle Miller Having lived in Manhattan and Central London, it is just in the last few years that I've started cycling again. I so enjoyed the Breeze rides led by a fellow school mum, I decided to become a ride leader to keep sharing the thrill that comes with two wheels. My husband is a keen cyclist and we love passing the joy of cycling on to our two boys. See you soon! Michelle

    Jill Dicker-Solderer I love riding my bike and encouraging other women to take up two wheels! Our rides are friendly and all about having fun! Look forward to seeing you on a Breeze ride soon!
