Celebrating the Tour of Britain coming to Clumber Park
We are celebrating by running a month long programme of cycling events for the whole family. This includes:
- Learn To Ride Fridays: Running throughout August on each Friday, these sessions encourage children to ditch their stabilizers and helps give them confidence when riding. Lets Ride Pop Up:
- Lets Ride Pop Up: Join us for a day of cycling in the grounds of Clumber Park in partnership with British Cycling. Our traffic free loop is the perfect place to jump on your bike, or borrow one of ours for free, and enjoy a relaxed ride. British Cycling Go Ride coaches will be on hand to support and develop your cycling skills too. There’ll also be a special area for balance bikes, perfect for little ones who are trying out cycling for the first time. Whether you’re a confident cyclist or you’re just starting out, come along and join in.
- On the day: Saturday 8th September is the day the tour comes to Clumber Park and we will be providing more cycle fun for the whole family. From marked family friendly self-led routes to led rides, to cycling games and activities and 'cycle silliness' (including a slow bicycle race and possibly some penny farthings!), come on down before the Tour passes through and get involved with all of the fun!
