Rides will be notified to our email list. We are no longer running regular weekly rides but instead will offer a ride whenever a leader is available. All PHC rides are free and there is no need to book or tell us you are coming - just read the FAQ page and then simply turn up. Please note that rides will depart at the stated time so try to arrive 15 minutes before. Call the ride leader if you are late and we'll tell you where to catch us up, if at all possible. All full day rides are approximately 30 miles long unless stated otherwise. Join the email list to keep up to date with new rides or last minute changes.

Not got time for a full day ride? Try the monthly slower 3rd Saturday of the month afternoon rides from Beddington Park.

ASHTEAD AND EPSOM COMMONS - 25 miles - Carshalton
Plenty of offroad on all-weather tracks. Cafe options at Nonsuch Park or Ewell Court, lunch at The Woodman and an afternoon stop either at Epsom Downs kiosk or Pistachios at Banstead

OLYMPIC PARK - 24 miles - London Bridge
Largely traffic free and flat, stop off at the Meantime Brewery cafe in Greenwich then jump into the cable car to cross the river. Lunch at The Fox at Connaught Bridge is always a winner then ride atop the sewer pipe aka Greenway to the velodrome where the cafe overlooking the track is open to all.

THE GEORGE - 29 miles - Pollards Hill
The National Trust's central London pub features in lots of our rides. This one stops at Beckenham Place Park in the morning, uses The Waterlink Way into town and chooses from Peckham Rye or the Horniman Museum in the afternoon

RICHMOND RIVERSIDE - 30 miles - Carshalton
We themed this one around The Rolling Stones but it's just a great 30 miler for a Richmond lunch at the White Cross and then chose from Wimbledon Common, Merton Abbey Mills or Morden Hall for the afternoon stop

GODSTONE - 33 miles - Carshalton
We love Fanny's Farm which is the ideal morning stop here, followed by the Hare and Hounds in Godstone for lunch and a summertime church tea at Farleigh Church to complete this challengingly hilly ride

THAMES COURT - 32 miles - Wimbledon
Stop off at the Pheasantry in Bushy Park then spin along the river to lunch at the Thames Court pub before catching the little ferry over to the south side where the best afternoon stop is at the Thames Ditton miniature railway (first Sunday of the month only, Easter to Oct)

JUBILEE RIVER - 30 miles - Train-assisted
A train-assist to Datchet, through Ditton Park to the Jubilee River and on to Eton Dorney for a morning stop at the cycling mecca of Dorney Court. Lunch at the Jolly Woodman then dip into Burnham Beeches and back through Black Park

BANSTEAD LOOP - 30 miles - Pollards Hill
We stopped running this ride when The Mint at Banstead became too busy for groups but it features the best bits of the Wandle Trail, the cafe at the Purley Way garden centre, the cracking view of Epsom Downs as you round Tattenham Corner and the opportunity for an ice cream at Nonsuch Park

WATERLINK AND WANDLE - 32 miles - Pollards Hill
Three great National Cycle Network routes - out up the Waterlink Way, through town on NCN4 and back along the Wandle Trail. We'd use The George for lunch, keep our fingers crossed that Ladywell Fields would be open in the morning and call into Merton Abbey Mills on the way back, especially if the summer festival is on.

BOX HILL - 33 miles - Carshhalton
The new cycling mecca of Box Hill is best tackled in reverse - going down it! We minimise the hills by doing most of the climbing at the start on the way to Woodmansterne. You can grab coffee at the park in Banstead, lunch at the Stepping Stones in Westhumble and enjoy cake or ice cream at Nonsuch Park in the afternoon.
