JOIN US! Group ride: “Pedal for Progress” March 8th.

 Cycle from Queen’s Gardens next to the Croydon Clocktower to the Cycling Made Easy showroom for refreshments before cycling up to Matthews Yard for comedy, poetry and more! Plus, it’s free to join!


To celebrate International Women’s Day, Croydon Cycle Theatre are hosting a guided, marshalled group cycle ride.

The full ride is 10 miles on flat, tarmac-ed terrain. You also have the option of starting at Cycling Made Easy to do the second half on its own.
There will be e-bikes available to borrow but these must be booked in advance. See below.

More info, and booking, is available on the Eventbrite page:


Is the ride just for women?

No, this is an inclusive event and we expect male and female riders on the day.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Children are welcome but they need to be accompanied by an adult. They need to be able to stop and start safely and should be able to ride at least 4 miles comfortably.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Queen’s Gardens is a short walk or ride from both East and West Croydon stations, though you will need to check the cycle restrictions on services out of London after 4pm. Our rest stop and half-way point (Cycling Made Easy) is close to both Coulsdon Town and Coulsdon South station if returning to Croydon by train is preferred (4.5 miles).

What can I bring into the event?

It will get dark at 6pm so lights are a legal requirement. And let’s turn out bikes into beacons: as many lights as possible please! The IWD colour is suffrage purple so if you have something puple to wear, please do. You will also need to dress accordingly for the weather; we recommend gloves and a waterproof jacket for spring riding (at least-obvs).

What you don’t need to bring is a bike: we have a limited number of e-bikes available to use as part of our ride but these MUST be booked in advance. Please contact us for further details.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
