24 October - Family Bike Ride


Starting from Greenstead Library at 10:30  and ending at 12:30pm

ECC are running a family bike ride along low traffic / traffic-free routes, designed to boost confidence for a variety of audiences. Participants can be new to, or returning to, cycling. The ride aims to encourage regular cycling for all ages.

The ride will be relatively short and focus on leisurely, pleasant and practical routes without too many steep hills; they are not designed for sports riding or training for experienced cyclists. The rides will be 5 miles long with a break half way.
