On your bike...

Brent Cyclists celebrated their annual involvement in the capital’s RideLondon event, with more than 50 residents cycling 30 miles on the last Saturday of July.

Representatives from Brent Cyclists met other riders, including first-timers, near Wembley Stadium before guiding them on a marshalled ride to Green Park in central London for the start of the event -writes brent.gov.uk.

David Arditti, Coordinator at Brent Cyclists, believes that this event is a fantastic way of introducing residents to the health benefits and enjoyment of cycling in a safe and controlled environment.

“My favourite part of the event is seeing the sense of achievement among the parents and children, after they’ve spent the whole day cycling,” says David. “Most of them never knew they could cycle that far under their own steam.”

Even though it’s a full day of cycling, the route is flat and relatively easy, making it ideal for all ages. “The kids particularly love the freedom of cycling in a traffic-free zone for the whole day,” he says.

David and his team at Brent Cyclists hope these types of events, coupled with free one-to-one cycling training offered by the council to children and adults will encourage more residents to get involved in cycling. In addition, they host monthly meetings, social events and community rides.

“Our ultimate aim is for cycling to become a major mode of transport in and beyond Brent,” concludes David.
