Waldy Wheelers were formed at the Waldegrave Arms in Teddington


Would you like to be a Waldy?




The famous Waldy Wheelers cycling club, which was ‘born’ out of Teddington’s popular pub The Waldegrave Arms is looking for new members.

The Wheelers started life as a group of just ten Teddington friends who took on the challenge of cycling from London to Paris back in 2014 and they formed the Waldy Wheelers Cycling Club, taking their name from the pub where they used to meet to plan their training rides.

Now the Waldy Wheelers has over 100 members, including a very active women’s membership, united by the original principles of being small, friendly and open to everyone, and will be returning to The Waldegrave Arms for a 10-year anniversary ‘pedal party’  in May.

Weekly club rides depart from Bushy Park on Sunday morning with riders clad in their distinctive pink and black kit heading out west towards Windsor, or south into the Surrey Hills, always finding a suitable place for a cup of coffee and a cake before heading home.

Different groups ride at different speeds, ensuring that everyone is as comfortable or as challenged as they want to be.  All rides are “no drop” so no-one is left behind.

The club also organises an annual overseas tour (this year heading to the popular cycling destination of Mallorca), coaching sessions at Hillingdon Cycle Circuit and more locally in Richmond Park, and last year launched a racing team with riders competing – and scoring points – in road and cyclocross races as well as time trial events.

Members also take part in various longer distance cycling events at home and abroad such as Chase The Sun, starting at sunrise on the Kent coast in mid-June and aiming to arrive 200 miles later in Western-super-Mare before sunset that evening, L’Étape du Tour, following the route of a stage of the Tour de France, or Ride London, a legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games that sees many thousands of cyclists ride 100 miles on closed roads from central London out to Essex and back.
