Best park to go cycling in London

A town with a great park to cycle around with great elevations & a lap distance of around 7 miles which is long enough to break a sweat! I love the fact that it feels very un-park like with no manicured lawns or fancy plant beds - it is about as close to the countryside that you can get in a city and has the freshest air that you can find in London. Although i have never lived there, i could imagine that if i did, i would be tempted to join one of the local rowing clubs as you can find many dotted around on the river between Richmond & Kew. The only downside is that the transport links are not great and if you are driving north of the river, the bridges are often a bottle neck & create length traffic jams on both sides.

Hi everyone, do any locals have any thoughts on the above? I've read this is one of the major drawbacks of living in Richmond and that it can be quite bad in parts. I have always imagined my dream house being in Richmond but not sure it's worth the money if it really is as bad as they say it is. Of course the estate agents tell you it's not that bad but it would be good to hear from locals... Thanks
