Cycling in Sutton and Merton

Get Cycling! - Cycling for Adults

We provide informal cycling sessions designed for adults who would like an opportunity to cycle, socialise and get gentle exercise in safe off-road environment. Perhaps you never learnt to ride a bike, want to regain your cycling confidence, use cycling to keep fit, or just to have fun and meet new friends. We have a wide range of bikes, trikes and four-wheelers (with two seats). Why not come along and have a go? Our friendly cycle instructors will help you learn or take it at your own pace. There are also opportunities to meet other people or to help at the sessions as a volunteer - why not ask about helping out as a 'trackside supporter'.

Sessions are held most Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings at the David Weir Leisure Centre (Sutton Arena) between 10 and 12 midday. We try to prioritise support for individuals wanting to learn to ride in the first hour of the session. Click here for a map.

Our range of cycles

We have a wide range of bikes to try out.  Find out which type of two wheeler suits you, or have fun experimenting with our range of exciting cycles.  Some people start on trikes before moving on to two wheelers. You are also welcome to bring your own bike to sessions if you prefer.

Two wheelers

Two wheelers: Apart from all our unusual and adapted bikes, we do have a range of two wheelers for those that just want to cycle, get exercise, learn to ride or brush up on your skills. Whether you want a comfortable, sturdy bike or a racy little number, we have a two wheeler for you to try.

Handcycle

The Handcycle: The bike is perfect for those that have limited mobility or weaknesses in the lower half of their body or if you just fancy working out those arms!

Go Karts and KMX

Go Karts and KMX: For the more adventurous among you who wish to try something unusual, we also have a range of bikes that you may not have tried before. The Go Karts are 4 wheeled and very stable, but quite fun to ride. The KMXs are low to the ground, quite sporty and provides a different cycling experience – well worth a go!

Trikes

The Trike: If you haven’t been on a bike for years or at all, trikes are often a good way to start to build your confidence. Participants often feel more secure having three wheels and not having to master balancing at first. We have a range of trikes, most with seats for a comfortable ride.
