I am looking for people to cycle with locally. I cycle for work at the moment but would like to do more.
Can anyone recommend a local club please? Dulwich Paragon are far to fast, ekkk! There's a good club in Richmond, but it's a bit of a trek.... Also not into 8am starts at the weekend.

Southwark Cyclists do sociable rides most saturdays but they are slow paced for easy cycling. The next one is this one

Lewisham cyclists do more adventurous stuff out in Kent but less frequently and Lambeth Cyclists do very interesting but certainly not pacey architecture rides.

One place to keep an eye on all these is the London Cycling Campaign list of rides and events here: https://lcc.org.uk/events

Hi Helen

I am a member of Dulwich Paragon (ladies are the Paragonettes) and there is a full range of cyclists in the club! I am certainly in the "steady social rider" category. Their intro rides are generally 1st Saturday of each month, give it a go and it will give you a chance to meet and ask questions before deciding whether to join.

Alternative friendly options are Dirtywkend, https://www.dirtywknd.com/pages/membership - and also take a look at Queen of the Mountains who do women only/focused rides https://www.queenofthemountains.co.uk/pages/our-rides

Helena. There's a fantastic women's group based in Bromley/beckenham. It's aimed at helping just women return to cycling or extend themselves with longer rides.
Some of the group have completed the ride o this weekend many started as nervous riders

Check out their site.
