We are pleased to welcome cyclists back to Richmond Park. From 22 June cycling is permitted to all on weekdays during park opening hours. This follows the temporary cycling suspension that was introduced at the end of March to support the Government’s social distancing guidelines, maintain public safety and prevent serious congestion at park gates.

We will undertake a managed re-introduction of cycling back into Richmond Park to provide access for weekday commuters. This will allow us to monitor and measure the impact of the re-introduction and whether any further measures are required.

The details

  • Cycling permitted for all cyclists at any time on weekdays
  • Weekend cycling currently for commuting keyworkers and under 12s with accompanying family
  • The red route is for children under 12 only. Any family accompanying them must be on foot
  • The park roads on the eastern side of the park around Priory Lane and Broomfield Hill are temporarily suspended to all adult cyclists at all times, in order to maintain safety and provide a safe area for children and families to enjoy
  • Cyclists are permitted to use the shared access Tamsin Trail around the perimeter of the park on weekdays only
