Female Cycling Club
The Outdoor Fitness Collective runs London’s only exclusively female only road cycling club. Aimed at improving riding skills and speeds, the club is friendly and welcoming. Rides are after work in Richmond Park and longer rides are on a Saturday morning and generally head in to the Surrey Hills or out towards Windsor.
The club was started to allow females to enjoy road cycling without being subjected to a competitive environment that can be found within some more hard core clubs. The general level of riders is intermediate.
Rides are generally on a Wednesday evening and Saturday morning. Please check the schedule for more information. Rides are generally co-ordinated through a club WhatsApp group.
Rides originate at Sheen Gate in Richmond Park
The annual membership cost is £50
