Win a bike ride with a member of Team Sky through Ride Social

British Cycling and Sky have created a new online way for people to build their own cycling communities. Cyclists can login and create a profile that allows them to join and create bike rides in their local area.

What is Social Ride?
Following a rebrand resulting in a new name, logo and style, Ride Social already boasts a 50,000 strong user base with 950 groups organising 3,000 rides. 
Stewart Kellett, British Cycling’s recreation and partnerships director, explains: 
‘We are delighted to have created a place for cyclists of all abilities to make friends, form groups and get out and ride their way. Ride Social is a great addition to our existing ride programmes, Sky Ride Local guided rides and Breeze bike rides for women.’

To celebrate the launch of Ride Social, cycling enthusiasts are being offered the chance to win a bike ride with a member of Team Sky. 
Want to enter? Here’s what to do:
  • Head to  
  • Create a ride on Ride Social that takes place between 14 November 2014 and 8 February 2015
  • Invite lots of local cyclists to join you 
  • Take a selfie of you and your group out on your ride and share on Twitter, Facebook and/or Instagram with the hashtag #ridesocial 

Keep an eye online to see which Team Sky cyclist you’ll be joining. The prize ride will take place in spring 2015.  


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