New cycling cooperative, Cycle Exchange, is open in Kingston

In a unique venture three independent cycle businesses have set up a shared space in a cycling hotspot near Richmond Park. The Bike Exchange Café and Workshop brings together  three services for cyclists.

‘Road Cycle Exchange’  is a shop showroom of pre-owned  high end road and triathlon bikes.  ‘The Bicycle Service’ offer professional servicing and bespoke repair of mountain, road and commuter bicycles. ‘The Selfish Bean’ is a coffee shop, with 100% single origin Arabica beans, cakes, and hot pastries. 

All under one roof! Check out the companies websites below:


Become a cycling instructor

If you love cycling, you might consider becoming a cycling instructor. Whether you would like to make it a full-time job or you just want to pass on some skills at your local school or youth club, undertaking the National Standard Instructor training is the first step.

Kingston is the only London borough recognised as an instructor training organisation (ITO). Since 2007, we have trained more than 300 instructors for local authorities and independent providers.

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
