Quietways Cycle Ride in RBKC

Quietways are the perfect routes for new or less confident cyclists providing continuous cycling routes away from the busiest roads. Even existing cyclists will find them useful links through some of the boroughs quietest roads!

Kensington and Chelsea’s first Quietway routes are now open and we’d like to invite you to join us for a ride to try them out. We’ll show you how to spot the Quietway signs and symbols, and it’s a great opportunity to find out how the network of routes are linked, givingoptions when route planning your cycle trips around the borough.

The ride is a group cycle ride accompanied by marshals.

We will cover the two numbered routes and some Quietway ‘links’ all in one ride:
• Q15 which runs from Belgravia to Earl’s Court
• Q2 from Bayswater to Little Wormwood Scrubs
• And the ‘links’ joining the two Quietways

Date: Saturday 14 July
Start time: 10:30am
Meeting point: Brompton Cemetery, Northern Gate on Old Brompton Rd
Nearest station: West Brompton

We will offer you a light refreshment once we reach Little Wormwood Scrubs, before we head back to the beginning of the route.

Finish time: 1:30pm
Finish point:
Brompton Cemetery, Northern Gate on Old Brompton Rd

The ride is free, but booking is required.

Advanced Discovery Rides

Join us and Cycle Confident in the New Year for our free Advanced Discovery Rides guided by Cycle Confident marshals!

We will be cycling from Chelsea Theatre to a variety of London’s loveliest green spaces, including Richmond Park, Hampstead and Wandsworth Common. There will be chances along the way to explore each park or simply pass through, depending on what you want to do on the day.

The next rides will be on 2 June and 7 July and we’ll be meeting before each ride at the Chelsea Theatre at 9.45 for a 10.00am start.

As this ride is aimed for confident commuting cyclists, please bring your own bikes. Otherwise, the ride is free to join, just make sure you have an account on the Cycle Confident website which takes about 5 minutes to create, and remember to sign up to the ride you want to join.
