The BARA Ride
Sunday 8 December
Walthamstow Family Bike Ride
Our aim is for a relaxed and enjoyable afternoon travelling by bicycle and exploring the nooks and crannies in and around our borough (Waltham Forest). Frisbees sometimes materialise when we hit a suitable open space.
Our pace is easy, and the maximum distance we do is 15 miles there and back. We will do our best to tailor our route to the abilities of those who turn up, so the distance we cover might be considerably shorter.
We aim to stop off at a cafe at about half time, but we recommend you bring a snack and some water (in case our plans are thwarted); plus of course a bicycle, and any children you can round up. In the winter months, please remember your lights.
Meet at 1pm at the Orford Road/Church Lane junction, E17 9RW, next to the old postbox opposite the Ancient House … see the map.
Sunday 22 December
WFCycling Monthly ride
Meet at 10.15 outside Walthamstow Library / Farmers’ Market. The Market opens at 10am so there is just enough time for a hot cuppa or your weekly groceries. We will ride into Central London, lunch at the only Chinese restaurant in London to offer traditional dim sum trolleys, see Christmas lights in Oxford Street, and return via the new Royal College Street segregated cycleway.
