Park Pedal Information
JOIN THE PARKPEDAL ONLINE COMMUNITY HERE
Due to the current Covid-19 outbreak we are having to suspend the weekly ParkPedal rides due to the social interaction. To tackle the social and physical impact this is going to have on riders we have set up an online Strava group where you can join for FREE and be part of a community of cyclists while we deal with Covid-19.
Covid-19 Statement for ParkPedal
In these unprecedented times we are having to adapt and change our plans for ParkPedal. We have had to make the decision to cancel all our future rides to help stop the spread of the Covid-19 Virus.
As we are following the government advice we know that staying active and healthy is a big thing in these times. Thats why we have set up an online Strava group for you all to join and be part of a social online community of rides where you can share you individual rides on Saturday mornings and other rides as well.
Taking the first steps on any journey is always the hardest part. ParkPedal is like no other cycling event. Aimed at new, returning and family riders, it is a traffic-free 5 mile ride to ignite and fuel your enthusiasm, passion and drive to start and enhance your cycling journey whatever your starting point. Whether you are looking for a lifestyle change, a new family inclusive activity or just wanting to get some oomph back into your life, ParkPedal is here to kickstart your cycling journey. Best of all it is free!
Our aim is to help break down those barriers that prevent you from starting your cycling journey. If you can’t bring your own bike you can borrow one of ours for your first few rides. It’s FREE but pre-booking is essential).

ParkPedal Café Rides.
Cycling is such a family and socially inclusive activity. Especially at ParkPedal. We have at least three café rides at around 10, 20 and 30 miles each week with groups at various speeds to accommodate new, returning and family riders. Riding together and looking out for each other is the only rule we insist upon. Each ride has a nominated leader who knows the route and has at least the basic maintenance skills to fix roadside issues. We also have a trained mechanic and van available to rescue stranded bikes and riders for your complete piece of mind. We scan you in and out to ensure everyone is accounted for and so that your ParkPedal journey record continues with rewards at each and every ten events completed. Your Café Ride mileage also accrues in your ParkPedal account. Learn the basics of riding in a group, hand signals to others and road etiquette.
