Event description

Description

Cycle South Brum are proud to announce our spooky Hallowe'en bike ride. There will be a short bike ride (all off-road) followed by horrific indoor Hallowe'en fun and games. Please tell us about everyone who is coming with you, including children, goblins and witches.

We will pick up and drop off participants at Hollymoor Community Centre, 8 Manor Park Grove, Northfield, B31 5ER.

This ride is suitable for all the family and all people-powered transport is welcome including bikes, scooters, trailers, trikes. All ages are welcome. Bats, dragons, elves etc are also welcome.

Booking is essential on all our rides for health and safety purposes. On all of our group rides, the pace will be gentle, we will go at the pace of the slowest rider and participants are free to stop and eat an eye of newt if they need to.

We will provide bike lights subject to availability. If you can provide lights for your own bikes please do so.

You are encouraged to wear Hallowe'en fancy dress if you feel like it but please make sure it is safe to ride a bike in your costume. Don't wear long gowns that will catch in your bike chain. Don't wear masks that obscure your vision. We encourage you to design your own costume if you can rather than buy throwaway plastic novelties. Feel free to include reflective items and lighting in your costumes. Fancy dress isn't compulsory and normal clothes are welcome!

There will be prizes for the best costumes and in particular for people who manage to safely combine Hallowe'en headwear such as witches' hats with a cycling helmet.

Can I borrow a bike and helmet?

We have a limited number of bikes, trailers and helmets for hire. They must be collected from Northfield Ecocentre by 4pm on the day of the ride and returned after the ride. You can ride from Northfield Ecocentre to Hollymoor with our ride leaders if you wish - this is nearly all off road with a short stretch of side road. Bikes must be booked in advance and arrangements made to pick them up made in advance. Bikes can be collected on the day if they are booked in advance, except for early morning rides where bikes cannot be collected on the morning of the ride. You will be asked about bike and helmet hire in the booking form. Bikes are subject to availability.

Helmets

We politely request that children attending group rides wear a helmet. We also recommend that adults wear a helmet, and we will have a supply of adult and child helmets available for the ride. They must be collected from Northfield Ecocentre by 4pm on the day of the ride.
