The Collective - Our Cycling Community
Are you looking for a cycling group that really wants to make a difference to your cycling? You’ve tried many ‘cycling clubs’ to no avail and are still in search of the ultimate cycling experience that is fun and social, (yet challenging at times) in order to get the best out of you. Our Njinga Collective rideouts are all about team spirit and improving your confidence and performance on the bike!
When you ride with the Collective, you ride with friends and fellow riders who share the same passion and love for cycling as you do! We have created an incredible community of riders, the camaraderie and spirit at The Njinga Collective is unique and like no other team or organisation. Fancy joining our cycling community?
Rideouts take place on Saturdays with a 8am meet at Barge Walk (Opposite the Njinga Lab). The Collective season runs between Saturday 7th April and Saturday 27th October.
We will have 4 different group speeds on each of the Ride Captain led rideouts.
Group 1: Kalulu – The Hare (average 16mph).
Group 2: Mkango – The Lion (average 15mph).
Group 3: Njati - The Buffalo (average 14mph).
Group 4: Mbidzi - The Zebra (Average 12-13mph).
Please note you must be able to ride a little faster on the flats.
Training v Challenge Rides
The 2 rideouts a month that will be led by our highly experienced Njinga Ride Captains are Challenge/Touring rides. The Challenge rides will be around 80km in length and will include a pre-set route into the Surrey Hills, with predetermined "challenge segments" allowing riders to set their own personal records if they choose. There will also be 2 touring rides throughout the year...Our annual ride down to Brighton and also a ride to Kent to the Kelly Holmes Cafe.
There will also be 2 training rideouts a month. There will be no Njinga Ride Captains on these rides but instead you will be able to ride with fellow Njinga Collective cyclists. Njinga kit is not compulsory on these and a repository of routes with GPX files will be available online. You will be able to ride the route seleted by us or another route with your fellow riders. As you start riding you will make friends and its these friends that you will ride with on training rides.
“I have been a cyclist for years and love it. But...since starting at Njinga my enjoyment, my ability my fitness and the whole cycling world has got better and better. The place and team are genuinely friendly, incredibly well informed and expert trainers.”
I've thoroughly enjoyed riding with the Collective this year and I hope that Njinga continues to maintain the same inclusive and encouraging spirit that differentiated it from other cycling clubs. It's been a real pleasure being part of it, spending every Saturday morning on the bike with a friendly, supportive & fun bunch of people.
