This West London Breeze ride is open for anyone to join
This women-only ride leaves Syon to cycle through Brentford and across Kew Bridge before using largely quiet, residential roads to reach Richmond. At Richmond, we access the river path to take us to Ham House on our way to Teddington Lock where we cross back over the river on foot.
From there we cycle to Twickenham before reverting to the riverside in order to make our way to Marble Hill House where we stop for refreshments. Following our stop we use the riverside back to Syon which gives us a perfect viewpoint across the Thames to where we cycled previously.
To join the ride you need a bike in full working order so please check beforehand that the brakes work, the wheels spin freely and the tyres are pumped up. No special clothing is required but dress for the weather, avoiding loose garments that could catch in your chain. A helmet, some drinking water and a spare inner tube are recommended as well as cash for refreshments and a lock for your bike.
This is a pleasant circular tour with great views, no pressure on speed and well-suited to someone who has not ridden previously with a Breeze group so we hope to see you there.
