A Taste Of Our Rides


One of the best aspects of being a Brompton cyclist are the 'multi-modal' possibilities the bike brings. We ride safe in the knowledge we can just fold & get home on public transport from wherever we go.

We have a varied & constantly evolving calendar of rides, ranging from coffee-stop social & theme based cycles in the city & countryside, to epic +60 milers taking us well beyond the M25. We've even organised some meetups overseas in the past - one year we even went to the Paris "Car Free Day" for the weekend.

Below is just a tiny sample of just some of the rides we have completed over the years: 

Curious Hotels: a social 20+ miler touring London looking at different quirky hotels around London

The Thames Triple Chaser: a fun filled 25 miler starting in Trafalgar Square & ending in Greenwich. We follow the Thames east out of London taking in The City, Wapping, The Isle Of Dogs, Greenwich, The O2, Woolwich Arsenal & The Thames Barrier Park. We cross the Thames 3 times: once under (the Greenwich Foot Tunnel), once upon (the Woolwich Ferry), & once over (on the Cable Car). 

London "It's BRUTAL Out There!" : a 25-ish miler exploring Brutalist architecture around London. 

The Richmond-Box Hill Return: A 40-ish miler leaving from Richmond heading out of London via Richmond Park. We take in some truly gorgeous rural scenery before challenging ourselves with the climb to the top of Box Hill. We return to London after soaking up the sights of Box Hill. 


London-Cambridge: A +60 miler leaving from the South Bank heading out of London via the canal paths of the Lee Valley. We have a few small hills to climb & stop for lunch around the 30 mile point in Much Hadham. The route continues on to Cambridge with a few more small hills whilst we pass through south Cambridgeshire. We fold up & get the train back to London together. 

London-Canal Path tour: A 20 miler leaving from Richmond taking in urban sections of the Grand Union Canal. 


London by Night: 15-25 milers taking in various sights around London overnight. We have toured London overnight at Christmas to see all the lights, & on another occasion we completed a Monopoly Board tour of London.  

London-Oxford: A 65 miler leaving from Richmond. Some challenging ascents over the Chilterns in the first half of the day.

London-Whistable: an annual favourite since 2014, this ride offers 2 starts: either cycling from Trafalgar Square or meeting a bit later in the morning in Otford (Kent), & finishes on the beachfront in Whitstable, Kent.

Looking for a way to take the group to Whitstable with an interesting route: this route takes in The Pilgrims Way & the North Kent Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

DETAILS: At 49 or 79 miles this is a long ride (with some hills), & as such suitable for cyclists with some experience on long distances.
