Free Get Cycling route map from KCC

The Kingston Cycling Campaign (KCC) has created a tailor made guide to traffic-free and quiet cycle routes around Kingston called ‘Get Cycling’.

There are 6 routes described in words and shown on full colour maps, with lovely design carried out by local designer Alison Groom. The booklet is 20 pages long and as well as the six rides it shows a handy guide to crossing Kingston town centre from all directions.

Members of KCC contributed to researching the routes, checking them, writing text descriptions, mapping, taking photographs and co-ordinating the design and printing. 

How to get your hand on one
KCC had 1,000 ‘Get Cycling’ guides printed for the launch at The Kingston Bike Festival on 10th August 2014 (picture, inset). They are currently available for free from all the borough’s libraries and we hope that bike shops will each have a stock of them soon. 

Can't get yourself down to a library? No worries, simply email Cycle Kingston at info@cyclekingston.net with your address and we will pop one in the post for you.

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.

You can read more about our training here, and learn more about being a Bikeability Instructor here

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 info@cyclekingston.net with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
