Get on your bike: Free cycling event comes to Norman Park

The 1k circuit will be trialled in just two places around the UK
A new cycling social event is coming to Bromley next week - one of the only two places in the country to trial the fitness experiment.
Cycle Circuits will rival Bromley Parkrun, the popular 5k jog held at Norman Park every Saturday morning. The pilot scheme will start at the same place on the last Sunday of each month from 10:30am, where cyclists can expect a 1k traffic-free route along with a free tracking device to check their average time.
National governing body British Cycling has organised the social, who say the event is being trialed in Bromley to encourage more people to try out biking.
Rob McLean of British Cycling said:
“We’re really excited that this pilot project is coming to Bromley, building on the hard work currently being done by the borough’s British Cycling volunteers to get more people cycling.
“We hope the pilot will be a huge success so Cycle Circuits can be rolled out more widely in the near future.”
A spokesman of the London Borough of Bromley said:
“We are delighted to continue our successful partnership with British Cycling and very excited that the new Cycle Circuits pilot will be taking place in Bromley.
The activity is perfect for all abilities, and being in an off road environment it’s great if you haven’t been on your bike for a while.”
First Aid qualified volunteers will be marshalling the circuit.
The first three cycling trials in Norman Park will take place on Sunday, August 28, September 25 and October 30.
