Everyone’s invited to get on their bike this September and join in a free group cycle ride.
The final Cycle Ride for All in 2017 will pedal off on a 12 mile round-trip cycle ride to Fradley Junction on Sunday 17 September.
So far the group has cycled to plenty of destinations, including to Fisherwick Lakes, Weeford and Packington Moor Farm, around Chasewater, and to the National Memorial Arboretum.
This month’s ride is graded level two, which means it is suitable for all, although some beginners may struggle.
Paul Niven, cycle ride leader, said:
“Going on a group cycle ride is a great way to enjoy a bike ride, without the pressure of finding your own way. We’ve had lots of people of all ages join us each month, and hope plenty of people will come along to our last ride of the season.
“Cycling is a great way to get round all year, and the aim of Cycle Rides for All is to get more people out on their bikes, and to show them some of the wonderful cycle paths we have across the district.”
Anyone wishing to join in the ride, simply needs to bring themselves and their bike to Freedom cycles, in Windsor Business Park, off Trent Valley Road in Lichfield, by 10am.
All bikes are given a quick safety check before setting off. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. Wearing a safety helmet, appropriate clothes, and bringing a packed lunch and drink is recommended.
To find out more, or to check whether a ride is taking place if the weather is uncertain, please call Lichfield District Council's parks team on 01543 308867.
Cycle Rides for All is run in partnership by Lichfield District Council, Freedom Cycles and Lichfield ReCycle.
