Richmond Park Cyclists (RPC) is a new umbrella group representing all cyclists and para-cyclists who use Richmond Park.
Ringed by a seven-mile road and featuring a wide variety of off-road trails, it is no wonder that Richmond Park attracts more cyclists than any other in the country. But there has never been an organisation that could communicate between cyclists and the park’s authorities - until now.
Over a couple of meetings held last year, we formed our group as a means of creating a dialogue with The Royal Parks (the body in charge of Richmond Park), the Metropolitan Police and key stakeholder groups. Some of our founding group already enjoy longstanding relationships with the these bodies.
All of us at Richmond Park Cyclists use the park for commuting, training and leisure riding. We advocate safe, courteous and respectful behaviour and encourage everyone to abide by the Highway Code and the park’s regulations.
