CYCLISTS are invited to take part in London's biggest bike ride.
The annual London Freewheel on September 21 lets cyclists ride all over the city centre and between Buckingham Palace and the Tower on traffic-free roads.
Residents can ride into London, led by experienced cyclists from Bromley branch of London Cycling Campaign. The main meeting point is Bromley South station at 10am but riders can join a group leaving from Priory Park Gardens, in Orpington, at 8.30am, Petts Wood Station at 9.15am and Beckenham Park Place Mansion House at 10.45am. The ride is suitable for families and will stop regularly to re-group. There will be a rest area along the Mall. Anyone under 16 should be accompanied by a parent or carer. Cyclists should bring water, snacks and a bike in good condition, along with a spare inner tube and tools to change a wheel. The ride leaders can offer help if needed. The length of the central circuit is seven miles, and the journey into town will be 10 to 12 miles. The route to town can be found at www.bromleycyclists.org.
