This event on Saturday 29 July is brilliant – cycling around London on traffic-free streets! There will be an 8-mile circuit of central London roads closed to motor traffic with a variety of entertainments en route. https://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/events/freecycle/
Enfield Cycling Campaign are leading a feeder ride to the event for anyone cycling direct from here. The route will start from Edmonton Green and is almost entirely either off-road (eg along towpaths) or on a segregated Cycle Superhighway. Trained ride leader David Hilliard and marshals will help keep everyone safe. It’s quite a long ride – approximately 12 miles each way – at a gentle but reasonable pace. There will be a meeting point in The City (and a time) for anyone wishing to join the return ride.
If you want an easier day (either both ways, or just the return journey), perhaps if you are bringing children, we recommend taking bikes on the Overground between Edmonton Green or Enfield Town and Liverpool Street. Liverpool Street station is about a 5-minute walk from the FreeCycle route.
If you plan to come, please register online for FreeCycle. You’ll get some nice freebies and a welcome email with a link to register for our particular feeder ride so we know to expect you. https://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/events/freecycle/
If you have any questions please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to help.
We are also planning a smaller, unofficial feeder ride from Palmers Green Triangle or possibly from Enfield Town via Palmers Green. This will be mainly on-road, so willingness to cycle in traffic is necessary. More details will be posted here as they become available.
