Silver Sunday Ride
The point of #WFMiniHolland and all safe and protected cycling space is so that everyone can cycle, from 8 to 80. This is why we are keen to team up with the Council for this little celebration of our Seniors, and offer a fun ride especially – but not exclusively – designed for older people: join our award-winning ride leader, and no spring chicken herself, Bridget, for a gentle loop around the Olympic Park, away from motor traffic. We will be done by 3:30.
Sunday 8 October – 1pm, Ancient House E17

Sunday 15 October – 2pm, Walthamstow Village Square
Walthamstow Family Bike Club’s Newcomers Ride
This ride around the quiet streets in Walthamstow Village is intended for those new to cycling, including families with young children, and will especially appeal to those who don’t have the stamina or confidence for our longer ‘Open Spaces’ excursions on the 2nd Sunday each month.
Basic skills are necessary: please make sure you are able to pedal and balance, turn corners, and brake to a halt .. all without falling off! If you are not confident about your basic skills, then we can recommend the council’s free cycle training.
We’ll keep together as a group and ‘top and tail’ the ride with marshalls, with an experienced ride leader at the front, and an expert marshall at the back to keep cars out of our convoy. We also have at least one other marshall who cycles on the right hand side of the group to help out with junctions etc.
We meet at 2pm in Walthamstow Village Square at the junction of Eden Road and Orford Road (for a map click here). We finish at the Square around 3:30pm.
Sunday 22 October – 10:30am, Walthamstow Town Square
