WEEKLY BIKE RIDES
AROUND THE PARK
WELCOME TO RIDE THE PARK
Ride The Park is an initiative offering weekly bike rides in Burnley and Blackburn.
Our rides are aimed at adults who want to build confidence on a bike or get back into cycling.
Children are also welcome (with an accompanying adult); making Ride The Park the perfect opportunity to take part in a fun, healthy activity...all in a safe environment...and for FREE!
All adult riders must complete a one-off registration process before taking part in an event. Completing the registration is essential for insurance purposes...but it also helps us to keep the event free (by enabling us to feedback data to our partners/sponsors)
The rides are all about enjoyment... in other words, they're not a competition or race!
Our aim is for you to take part in 6 of our events, after which, we hope you'll have the confidence and ability to venture, independently, into the wider world of cycling!
The route at each park is less than a mile but you are welcome to go round more that once if you fancy it.
There are no steep hills and there will be marshals on-hand for safety and support.
ABOUT THE RIDES
If you need to borrow a bike, that's fine!
We'll have a variety of adult and children's bikes, and tow-along trailers, available to borrow - free of charge (although donations into the bucket would be appreciated on the day)!
Would you like to be involved?
We're looking for volunteers to marshal at our events.
You'll need to be enthusiastic about getting people cycling and supportive of participants...but full training will be provided.
Please contact us to find out more.
EARN REWARDS AS YOU RIDE
Our aim is to get participants to attend 6 rides - after which we hope you will have the confidence and ability to venture, independently, into the world of cycling.
Our event sponsor, Avocet, are offering cycling goodies to encourage you to keep coming along! These get better for each ride you complete (up to 6 rides in total).
