Hi - I'm considering adding Richmond Park in to vary my routine (commute to/from Croydon/Oxford St most days, Regents Park laps about twice a week, longer (100k or so) rides out through Surrey & Kent at weekends.)
A couple of things - I can't seem to find a decent cycling route from Morden to Richmond Park (everything looks like it includes the poxy A3) - does anyone have any ideas about that? Maybe through South Wimbledon or something?
Also, what's the situation with the speed limit in the park? I read about the rozzers pulling people over and fining them - specifically a kid hitting about 50k/h on a descent, but also heard idle rumours about others - don't much fancy being fined for training!
Finally, is doing laps in mid-morning the way to go? Seems to be that it's a decent time for cycling in most places due to lower traffic volumes, and I think I'd struggle to get up there early enough to be pre-rush-hour
How old are you, Chris?
