Wimbledon Station

Meet with cash, spare inner tube, and lights for a unique experience.


We ride accross Wimbledon Common  and Richmond Park in daylight for a drink at the Roebuck on Richmond Hill;

We enjoy the wonderful view over the Thames as night falls;


and return through car-free, star-lit, Richmond Park for an ethereal experience.


MCC will be leading a Solstice Ride on Wednesday 19th June 2013 leaving Wimbledon Station at 7:30 PM., over the common and through Richmond Park for the Roebuck PH and a social gathering of people who cycle, from all over SW London.

The highlight is sunset, with the ride back through Richmond Park with no street lighting. Some worth-it steep bits, but it is no shame to walk up if need be.

You'll need cash and lights, and it's best to bring a spare inner tube with valve to suit your rims. A camera would be good.
There will be a barbecue at Jenny and Paul Roden's on June 21st 2013,7:30 pm 88, Aylward Road at the junction with Leafield Road, near South Merton Station.

There'll be a presence at Wimbledon Fair on Saturday.
