Our rides programme is now published on Eventbrite - we're simply a bunch of local bikers who got together in May 2000 to push bikes up the agenda, press the Council for better bike facilities, do rides for all sorts of people, and have some fun at the same time. We've a proper Constitution and an Equal Opportunities Policy we believe in.

Ride to Chislehurst Caves


Coronavirus is not the only thing that needs social contact to survive. The same is true of our cycling group.But what should we do if more than 6 people turn up to a ride? Can the extra people tag along at the end, or should we send them home?

One way out is the “sports exemption”, but a simpler solution is to split the group into a number of separate bubbles of up to 6. This is what we did on this occasion.

Multi-bubble Ride to the Bookstore Cafe, Erith - Sat Oct 17th

We are now having to adapt both to the "Rule of 6" and Tier 2 regulations. Insisting on everyone having Eventbrite tickets for our rides doesn't work for us. Not everyone with Eventbrite tickets turns up and it is often the proactive people without Eventbrite tickets who facilitate the running of a ride and make it a success. We have found that the solution is to organise "dual bubble" rides for 12 people.

Eventbrite Rides Scheme

Eventbrite Rides is a new scheme that has helped many people to do post-lockdown cycling over the last few months. This volunteer-led initiative is operating across much of London and is expanding – and now we want your help to spread the word to people who want to cycle more but lack confidence to create their own Eventbrite tickets.
