The route is suitable for all ages as it follows the wide circular shared-use path around the Ornamental Waters and is just 1.5 miles long. All under-12s must be accompanied by an adult.

Meet at 1.30pm for a quick bike check on the plain opposite the Tea Hut in the Park, near the Northumberland Avenue/ Wanstead Park Avenue entrance. Families will set off from 2pm.

All donations welcome at: https://justgiving.com/crowdfunding/wanstead-park-playground.

Redbridge London Cycling Campaign marshals will be ensuring everyone’s safety. You can book with LCC via Eventbrite, or just turn up without booking.

  1. I object to lots of cyclists ploughing up the paths of the park and getting in the way of people who want a quiet walk. This will encourage more and more cyclists and ruin the park for those residents who can’t cycle or prefer walking. I am totally against this.

    • This summer fun cycle ride for young families is a one-off which has been licenced by the City of London as a safe event which has been risk-assessed.

      This short ride promotes the new play area and encourages responsible cycling. All riders will be encouraged to treat pedestrians on the shared-use path with courtesy and marshals will be present. As it takes place in June the paths are unlikely to be ‘ploughed up’.
