The Chester Cycling Campaign and Sustrans have organised a series of free family bike rides for Summer 2018. The rides are ideal for families wanting to start cycling together in a safe, traffic-free environment.
All of the rides can be completed easily by beginning cyclists and by young children. All are welcome regardless of age or ability. Trained and experienced ride leaders will be present to answer questions and deal with any minor bike-related problems you might have.
