Residents can explore the borough in a day of fun free guided bike rides on Sunday 29 June to celebrate National Bike Week.

The Ticket to Ride event is open to cyclists of all levels, particularly family groups, nervous riders, or people that want to return to cycling.

Experienced and qualified cycling instructors will be there on the day to lead the 11 mile route along roads, the canal towpath and through parks, taking in the borough’s sights while building cyclists’ confidence.

Guided rides will leave Gunnersbury Park, Acton and Brent Lodge parks in Acton and Hanwell on the hour from 10am until 4pm.

Each ride is expected to take two to three hours to complete with breaks along the way. Cyclists can choose to ride only part of the route if they prefer.

Free Dr Bike cycle bike health checks will be available at both parks and there will also be information about Ealing’s cycling activities and training.

Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for environment and transport said, “It really is a fantastic day out. Last year, more than 300 cyclists of all ages took part. It’s a great way to boost cyclists’ confidence on the road while taking in the borough’s sights”.
