  • Walthamstow Family Bike Club Ride:
    Sunday 12th April 1:00 pm-5:00 pm

    Join us for a fun, slow & sociable ride around some of the green spaces in Waltham Forest.

    Meet at 1pm at Orford Road/Church Lane junction E17 (next to the old postbox near St. Mary’s Church - see map below); we aim to get back no later than 5pm.

    We usually stop along the way for a picnic snack, so apart from a bicycle and any children you can round up, bring some water and something to eat. We usually seek a respectably long refreshment break at a cafe as long as the majority are in favour (they always have been so far!).

    The maximum distance we usually do is 15 miles for the round trip, but as its tailored to the abilities of those who turn up, it can be considerably shorter.

    Everyone is welcome.
    This event is free.
