Sunday family bike rides

bikeride_poster_2012_07_021The Ely Cycling Campaign is organising family bike rides around Ely every second Sunday. These will be leisurely rides around Ely for adults and children with many playground stops and a picnic (bring your own) in Ely Country Park /Pocket Park by the river.

The next rides will be on:

29 July 2012, 12 August 2012, 26 August 2012 and 9 September 2012

No need to book, just turn up on the day. Anyone can join in, we’ll go as slow as the slowest rider and if you don’t want to finish the ride you can drop out or join in at any point.

We will have a short playground break in  the playground near Brooke Grove. Most of this part of the ride will be on traffic free paths and we will then cross Downham Road and ride past the Lantern Primary school along the Stour Green area.

We will then have to do a short section on road (John Amner Close, Lynn Road and Deacon’s Lane), but small children can push their bikes on the pavement. We will then cycle past the Paradise Centre to have a coffee break in the city centre.

Afterwards we’ll cycle down the Vineyards (a quiet road) past Sainsbury’s to Ely Coutry Park for another playground break and for our picnic. Finally, we’ll cycle along the river, through Jubilee Gardens and up Cherry Hill towards Cambridge Road and then along quiet back roads to our starting point by St Johns primary school.
