Get to Know Us

Forge London is made up of riders from all abilities and backgrounds. We have members from across the South West London area including: Chertsey, Kingston, New Malden, Putney, Richmond, Teddington and Twickenham.

We have newbies, old hands, racers, dedicated club riders, triathletes, social riders and a sprinkling who have been every one of these. The thing they have in common is remembering their first ride for a new club.

We know joining may feel like a big step but a friendly face, a word of encouragement and the chance to go further, find new places and meet great people is never far away at Forge.

So, let’s meet some of them.

I am mainly a social rider. I really enjoy being outdoors, taking in the view wherever I’m riding.  I love heading out to different places whether that’s from Kingston or much further afield and appreciating the change of scenery.
