(3-mile circular route from artsdepot to Friary Park plus refreshments AND green ride to Barnet Countryside Centre)
Something needs to be done to raise awareness and use of the bicycle in our area. The Greenacre Bicycle Rally, with your help will do just that. Picture the scene – hundreds of bicycles, fancy dress, flags flying, balloons floating upwards. If you missed it last year, do not miss it this year, as it will be bigger and better than ever.
We will set out on a triangular 3 mile circuit from artsdepot to Friern Barnet up to Whetstone and back down to North Finchley. The complete rally will be one and half laps with a refreshment/entertainment break in the middle at Friary Park. We will be escorted by trained stewards, police cyclists and St John Ambulance cyclists, so the event is safe and suitable for cyclists of all ages and experience providing they have good basic control of their bike and a measure of common sense.
Cyclists will assemble on the paved area outside artsdepot N12 0GA from 10am for a 12-noon departure. All cyclists need to be registered. Please allow enough time to register on the day - registration table closes at 11.30am or better still pre-register by phone or e-mail.
This year we will also be having a green ride that starts from outside Friary Park after our lunch break at 2.15pm. The ride will take the scenic route along Dollis Brook towards Barnet and finish at the Barnet Countryside Centre. There will be an environmental fayre taking place and hopefully tea and homemade cakes for the cyclists.
