Event description
Join a fun and friendly nature experience with us! You'll learn more about trees, and enjoy fresh air and exercise, all in good company.

About this event

The Knavesmire is an ancient stray - one of the oldest, undeveloped green spaces in the city. Its edges are dotted with the most remarkable ancient trees, some over 200 years old. There's a Giant Cedar, an Elder Oak, a Queen Beech, and many more! Come along and meet the Trees, find out more about them, and perhaps enjoy a tree hug or two :)

Practicalities

Meet at 2pm outside the entrance to the Holiday Inn on Cherry Lane (off Tadcaster Road). Please allow up to 2 hours for the walk. It will take place at a steady pace, with breaks where desired. Please note that group numbers are currently limited to six.

Check the weather forecast beforehand and wear suitable clothing. Please do not attend if you are unwell. Bring any personal medication and, ideally, hand sanitiser and a face covering in case they are needed. For a walk, wear walk and mud-friendly shoes. For a ride, bring a roadworthy bike, spare inner tube and working lights.

We try to make all our walks and rides accessible for people of all ages and abilities. Please get in touch if necessary, and we’ll do our best to meet your needs. Do consider travelling to the activity by sustainable transport if you can. All start points are easily accessible by bus or bike.

We will be observing the current Covid-19 government precautions. We trust that you will do the same.

Please email yorkbikebelles@gmail.com if you have any questions.
