Cycle rides for all
The monthly Sunday cycle rides programme, Cycle Rides For All, is back for 2018.
Cycle Rides for All is launching on Sunday 25 March with a three and a half mile Lichfield taster ride setting off from Beacon Park.
This event signals the start of free monthly cycle rides that take place towards the end of the month, from March to September.
Each month the group cycles to a new destination, including round Lichfield and Burntwood or to Chasewater, Fisherwick Lakes, the National Memorial Arboretum and Fradley Junction and back again.
The rides are graded from level 1, which are suitable for beginners, to level 4, which are for more experienced cyclists.
The meeting places are: Beacon Park in Lichfield, Curborough Community Centre in Lichfield, Freedom Cycles in Windsor Business Park in Lichfield and Burntwood Leisure Centre.
Just turn up at the designated time and meeting place with your bike as well as a snack/lunch/drink. We recommend wearing a cycling helmet.
