Richmond Park Bike Ride
25th June 2010

Easy 15 mile circular night ride for adults through traffic free Royal Park in west London. This ride through Richmond Park is possibly the coolest ride of Bike Week Events. Just imagine riding through unlit suburban country with no cars and just wild deer roaming about.

Clapham Junction Station 10.00pm. Ride to Putney station for 10.30pm meet up.  Ride to Roehampton Gate for 11pm meeting & talk on riding in Park. Ride anticlockwise around road & centre path, through Ham Common finishing at Ham House foot ferry slipway from about midnight for a picnic and drink. Ride back to Wandsworth through Richmond & Putney.
Bring: lights, food for a picnic, drink, (warm clothes if chilly or wet or not if it’s barmy) and a spare inner tube, cycle repair kit, musical instrument (optional) and a sense of humour.
