Cycle Rides for All is launching on Sunday 26th 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 Fisherwick Lakes, Weeford and Packington Moor Farm, Chasewater, the National Memorial Arboretum and Fradley Junction.

The rides are graded from level 1, which are suitable for beginners, to level 4, which are for more experienced cyclists.  

All the bikes receive a quick safety check by Freedom Cycles before setting off, to make sure they are roadworthy. It’s recommended that safety helmets are worn and that you bring a packed lunch and drink, although there is a café stop on most rides.

Anyone who wants to join the Lichfield taster ride should turn up with their bikes at Beacon Park in Lichfield on Sunday 26th March at 11am. There's even time to grab lunch from the Lakeside Bistro. This ride is graded level 1, which means it is suitable for all including beginners. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

To find out more, or to check whether a ride is taking place if the weather is uncertain, please call Freedom Cycles on 01543 411633 or Karl Sproston at Lichfield District Council on 01543 308846.
