Ingrebourne Valley Visitor Centre, Hornchurch Country Park, Squadrons Approach
Calling all cyclists, all ages and all abilities!
Do you fancy joining a regular group ride which is only off-road or along cycle paths?
The rides are aimed at those of us who want to practice our cycling, so the rides are lot too long (6-10 miles), are in a safe and traffic free environment, led by trained ride leaders, and are for all ages and for families.
Why not come and join us each Sunday in November at 11:00? We will be meeting at the Ingrebourne Valley Visitor centre in Hornchurch Country Park and the rides will take place around the park, and possibly to Upminster, Rainham Hall, RSPB Rainham and return.
Bikes will be checked prior to each ride if needed, and we have a lot of free SkyRide Hi-Viz tops to give out to riders.
We are running these for the 4 weekends in November and if there is support we will continue them indefinitely. If you’d like to help lead the rides let us know.
Children under 16 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Cycle helmets, although not mandatory are advised to be worn.
The routes are suitable for most types of bikes, although if a special needs bike, tandem or tricycle is to be used, be aware that parts of the routes will not be suitable for them. All we ask is that bikes are:
• in good working order
• have fully inflated tyres
• have 2 brakes that work or be fitted with a front brake if a fixed wheel bike
• be an appropriate size for the rider to participate safely
