Think you can’t cycle? Think again!

A trike from Bush Hill Park inclusive cycling scheme

On Sunday 2 September, Better Streets’ sister campaign, Enfield Cycling Campaign, will once again be running a try-a-bike area at Palmers Green Festival – this time on behalf of the council’s Cycle Enfield. This try-a-bike will be bigger and better than ever! Whether you want to try an electric bike, a three-wheeled trike, a folding bike, a tandem, a cargo bike – or find a solution for cycling with a disability, or carrying young children – there will be a bike for you!

This cargo bike will be available to try

This very popular festival runs from 12 noon to 7pm – as usual we’ll be in the tennis courts. The theme this year is health and well-being, so it’s definitely the year for you to experiment with a healthier, more active lifestyle!

The Hackney Family Cycling Library will be there to give advice on carrying kids by bike, with a selection of trailers, bike seats, tag-alongs – and an Urban Arrow cargo bike supplied by CarryMe Cargo Bikes.

We’ll also have a selection of brand new Frog Bikes for kids to try out.

Frog bikes are great for kids

As usual, some of the inclusive bikes from the Bush Hill Park inclusive cycling scheme will be available – see the trike in the first picture above.

This is all completely free of charge. Come and find us, ready for some fun, and possibly the start of a brand new you 🙂
