Cypress Cycling Club would like to invite families from all the Pegasus schools to our next cycle ride. We’re meeting at 10am on Sunday 20th May in Grangewood Park which is between Thornton Heath and South Norwood Hill. From there we will cycle to Norbury Park to try out the BMX track. We’ll be there at about 10.30am. So, you could join us there if you preferred. The more advanced riders will carry on to Tooting Common and Streatham Common with a stop for lunch. Whether you join us at Grangewood Park, Norbury Park or further, experienced cyclists will be with you to show you the way (there and back!)
What is Cypress Cycling Club? It’s a cycling group for families to socialise and ride bikes to various destinations in the area. We set it up in September 2016 and have been meeting about once a month since then. We’ve ridden to South Norwood Country Park, Shirley Windmill, Lloyd Park, Norbury Park, Crystal Palace Park, Sydenham Wells Park, Dulwich Park and even as far as Greenwich. We also have beginners sessions In South Norwood Lake where children and adults learn new skills to be better cyclists.
Who are we? Anyone who has children and wants to join others to ride their bikes safely. We have families from several other schools (as well as Cypress School) and children range in age from 3 to 11 years old. We choose quiet roads to cycle on and prefer to be off road or in parks to enjoy the scenery and fresh air. Some of the adults are trained in leading rides and cycle instructing and share that experience with the group. It’s FREE to come on the rides and children must bring an adult who is responsible for them. You’ll need to bring your own bike, but it may be possible to borrow bikes if you contact us in advance.
So, come and join us on Sunday 20th May!
10am at Grangewood Park next to the swings.
10.30am at Norbury Park at the BMX track.
We’ll do an ABC safety check on your bike. Dress for the weather. Gloves are recommended and if you have a go on the BMX track you are advised to wear a helmet. Bring a drink and a snack.
Remember, it’s FREE, it’s FRIENDLY and it’s FUN!
