On the afternoon of Sunday 11 March we’re gathering to ride the new cycle lanes along the A105!
Come one and all, whether you cycle every day or haven’t ridden a bike for 40 years – this will be an easy, family-friendly ride. We are joining with Cycle Enfield who are providing cycle instructors and marshals. (And it’s Mother’s Day, so bring your mum!)
Feel free to decorate yourself, your bike or both – balloons, bells, windmills, fancy dress all encouraged – and celebrate the transformation of this road and its town centres along the route.
Time and start place: 2pm outside Capitol House / Coffee Break in Winchmore Hill, 794 Green Lanes, N21 3RB (see image above from Google).
How far will we ride? There will be a choice of rides, either 20 minutes or a 40-minute ride, going out in groups of about 10 with a ride leader. Both are suitable for new or non-confident riders and they will stick to the bike lanes so you won’t have to ride in traffic.
How do I get there? You can come on public transport without a bike, and rent one of Enfield’s new dockless hire bikes at the starting point! (For ages 15 and up.) Download the Urbo app first – see www.myurbo.com. The starting point is on the 329 and 125 bus route and also a few minutes’ walk from Winchmore Hill station. You could also bring your own bike on the train.
I’d like to cycle there but I’m nervous of riding on the road. Contact Enfield Cycling Campaign on firstname.lastname@example.org and they might be able to pair you up with a cycling buddy to get you there safely from wherever you live in the borough.
