Spring 2017

Family Cycling Course, 10th and 11th of April

Hounslow Family Cycling Course

This led ride around the local area starts from Osterley Leisure Centre at 10.30am on both days, and is free to residents of the borough of Hounslow. There will be a half-hour lunch break (lunch not provided), before the ride continues until 2pm. Leading the ride will be qualified cycling instructors.

If you’d like to take part (with up to three children, aged 10+, per adult), you will all need your own roadworthy bikes, and already be able to cycle competently, as the ride will take place on local roads. Please note that children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
