Islington by Bike

Islington Council has been running a series of free community cycle rides throughout 2012 to encourage people of all ages to cycle, helping to boost confidence and increase physical activity.  It is an ideal day out for families with young children, helping them appreciate the beautiful sights and scenery Islington has to offer, whilst at the same time teaching them important road safety skills.

This program has been run in partnership with Barclays and Bike Club and each event involves a short ride around the borough. The route varies each time to allow cyclists to enjoy a different view of the borough and explore surrounding areas. Rides are marshalled by trained instructors and experienced cyclists. Everyone who finishes, receives a free Barclays goody bag.

 

Dates: TBA for 2013

Location: Rosemary Gardens, Sherborne Street, N1

Time: 11am (the ride should take approximately two hours, including a rest stop)

If you are interested in joining one of the events please complete the online booking form, indicating your preferred date. For further information, contact David Shannon by email david.shannon@islington.gov.uk or on 020 7527 4082.
