FAMILY RIDES - 16th June, 23rd June, 7th July, 21st July and 3rd August

There is a Family ride on Sunday 16th June - The Tour de Penge. Arranged by our friends at the Penge Cycle Club, this is a wonderful, wonderful, massive family ride from Penge to Greenwich and back. Part of the annual Penge Festival, taking up to 300 cyclists of all ages and abilities on a guided, safe and off-road route from Penge to the iconic Cutty Sark in Greenwich by the River Thames and back, a round trip of 16 flat miles. You don’t have to be a member of the Penge Cycle Club to join in. For first timers, the revelation that you can cycle along canal paths and through parks all the way to the Thames will come as a wonderful surprise. For regular Tour riders, it is a great chance to enjoy a family ride, take in an ice cream and (hopefully) enjoy the sunshine. You can find everything you need to know, including how to register at: http://pengecycleclub.org.uk/families/tour-de-penge-sunday-16th-june-2019/. Sadly, for the first time in years, Adam has to miss this one - but please do enjoy! The ride start point has changed, that is all now confirmed in the above hyperlink.

We have a Family ride on Sunday 23rd June - The Viking Trail. This one is new to us! You are welcome to join us for a short / longer ride suitable for adults, young people, families with children – in fact anyone who fancies a nice easy ride, mostly on quiet roads and cycle paths - and it's free! A ride by the seaside (and at times literally sea to one side and small cliffs the other!) and down some country lanes. Ride distances from 1 mile to 34 miles. You might get to see a Viking long boat!!!

We have a Family ride on Sunday 7th July - IN FRANCE! This one is new to us! You are welcome to join us for this 40 mile ride. It’s a chance to ride on the wrong side of the road, speak another language, see what the food is like, see a bit of French countryside riding down French country lanes and visit a sandy beach too. If you can ride to Brighton on road in a day, this challenge is for you! In order to control numbers this ride is not open to adults without children, except for adult volunteers from the Bigfoot to Brighton series and from Bigfoot Youth CC

Exhausted yet??? And.... there is a Family ride on Saturday 3rd August - The Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle. Not organised by Bigfoot! It's a brilliant opportunity to get the whole family together to experience the fun and freedom of cycling on traffic-free roads in central London among thousands and thousands of cyclists. The route is open from 09:00-16:00 and takes in the Strand and Lincoln’s Inn Fields and returns to the Victoria Embankment, taking in a section of the newly opened East-West Cycle Superhighway (CS3). The eight-mile circuit passes iconic London landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Bank of England, with stunning views of London to be found everywhere you look. To find out more and to register click here: https://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/events/freecycle/ . The link should also take you to the various feeder rides that you can join if you wish in order to cycle up and or back. Adam has enjoyed this over many years, but is missing out this year as he will be cycling in France.
