Just moved to Earlsfield and brought my mtb, realising now that won't be able to use train midweek to join mtb group in the evenings and my rota might mean time is at even more of a premium than anticipated. Which means I'm toying with idea of sending mtb back home and getting road bike sent down. Means I could in theory pedal from the door and get out during the week relatively easily. I could get a few more tris done plus I would look to head out to flanders next year which has been a long held goal. So is it just traffic and scoots around Richmond park or are there proper hills and country loops within striking distance?
Note there will only be one bike in our flat, i know, I know, I'm weak, not a true cyclist etc etc
