Families across the borough are always looking for new and interesting ways to keep themselves and their children fit and healthy. Sky Ride runs a number of cycling events in the local area that cover a range of terrains and lengths. If you are interested in joining in, you might want to check out a few of the rides that are coming up in the Bromley area this month.
The Cator Park Cruise
This ride on 23rd August is a 13-mile route that has been designed for confident cyclists. It is expected to take about 2.5 hours, with two of these hours devoted to cycling. It will set off at 10:00am opposite the playground on Kings Hall Road. The route follows the River Ravensbourne until it reaches the mouth at the River Thames. The majority of the route will be on traffic-free paths, and you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy some fantastic views at Greenwich Park before heading home through Deptford.
City Streets and Park Life
The City Streets and Park Life Sky Ride on 30th August is an easy three-mile route. It will set off at 2:00pm from the car park at Norman Park Recreation Ground and take a scenic route through the park. The ride will mainly be on tarmac, with a bit of off-roading through Bromley Common woods.
Sky Ride events are open to all ages and abilities. Further information on these and other local events can be found on the Sky Ride website.
