Enfield Cycle Campaign and Better Streets for Enfield are running a Try-a-bike session in September as part of the Enfield Climate Festival. Are you new to cycling and want to give it a go? Perhaps you want to try a different type of bike, or find out how much easier it is to ride an electric bike? Do your children want to try a new bike or are new to cycling? There will be lots of different children’s bikes to try. Ever wondered what it is like to ride a delivery cargo bike? Want to see if you can take your kids to school using a ‘tag-a-long’, tandem or a ‘bakfiet’? This is your chance to give it a go. It kicks off at 1100 on 19th September in Hazelwood Recreation Ground and finishes at 1500.

Volunteers needed

Maybe you are already a cyclist and would like to help show people bikes? We need volunteers to help with the event, including:

  • Meet and greet people as they arrive and direct them to the relevant section of the tennis courts.
  • Helpers to match people up with a bike and get them going. It may be necessary to adjust saddle heights etc.
  • Supervisors to stand in the middle of the circuit (everyone cycles round them) and keep an eye out for any issues – mechanical problems, risky behaviour etc.

If you can help with this great initiative to encourage people to cycle please email enfieldcyclingcampaign@gmail.com
