Bike2life lead short rides from Town Gate Sutton Park(starting from the grass triangle near the Visitor Centre, Park House Hotel and children's playground). They said:
We will meet at 5pm and be finished by 7pm. The rides will be short, easy and aimed at encouraging use of the routes through the park. The rides are aimed at families, particularly those with children who have done/are about to do Bikeability training, or who want to ride as a family to and from the park. The intention is to include aspects of the Bikeability training on the rides, so we may stop to explain about road positioning, how to communicate with car drivers, good practice when out with groups etc. There is no age limit, but children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. If you are interested please contact us either by bike2life@gmail.com or phone 07838 890 362. It would be good to know numbers in advance.
The 2011 rides will be:
7th, 14th, 21st and 28th June Town Gate, Sutton Park
5th, 12th, 19th July starting at Kingstanding Leisure Centre
