Surrey to Devon Coast Cycle Experience

Huge congratulations and well done to Ted Bright and his intrepid team for completing a grueling 240 mile bike ride over just 3 days.  Ted, owner of Bright Cycles organised the challenge and was supported by the cycling team which included local big wave surfer Andrew Cotton and his personal fitness instructor Andrew Blake.  The cyclists battled harsh weather but arrived safely in Saunton Sands with beaming smiles in the knowledge that they had raised in the region of £11,000.00

Ted and his team would like to offer massive thanks to everyone that supported the event; the funds will be spent on much needed equipment and enable them to sponsor more surfing lessons for physically disabled children.


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.
