Family ride

Local families are being encouraged to discover the benefits of cycling together  as part of an instructor led cycle ride as part of the Council’s new Family Sport scheme on Tuesday 8th August starting at 5.30pm at Itchen Valley Country Park. 

Open to families with children aged 5 to 16, it’s a chance to enjoy quality time together and also gain practical skills on how to cycle safely together as a group. 

Led by qualified British Cycling coaches, this ride will offer an introduction into bike maintenance, positioning and signalling, whilst taking in the beautiful surroundings of the country park. 

Families will also be able to enjoy healthy snacks and refreshments at the end of the ride.  This ride must be booked in advance for just £10 for up to a family of four.  For more information visit
