Event description

Description

Throughout 2018, Cycling UK (National Cycling Charity Reg No: 1147607), in partnership with Wirral Borough Council, HYPE Merseyside and Hope4All, will be celebrating people who cycle and helping those who need a little encouragement take up cycling. Within Wirral, we’re looking to encourage families to make better use of parklands and the National Cycling Network for fun activities which will improve physical and mental health and wellbeing and help improve family bonds. Cycling is a fun activity that offers these benefits and the New Year is a great time to target families as many children will be desperate to get out and ride their Christmas bikes.

The Wirral i-Cycle will take place in Birkenhead Park and is open to all families across Merseyside. The ride will consist of upto 3 guided laps of the park, followed by refreshments and a presentation at the visitor’s centre. Local Community Cycle Clubs, Helping Young People Everywhere (HYPE) and Hope4All, will be leading this event. So, dig your bikes out of the shed and join us for our inaugural family bike ride. Please Register members of your family individually to help us manage numbers. Details are as follows:
