Build your confidence on a bike with a ride around Knole Park or Brands Hatch
THE POPULAR professionally-led cycle rides in the Sevenoaks area return this summer with a focus on building up confidence on two wheels.
The rides, organised by Sevenoaks District Council, are specifically for people who are new to cycling, haven’t been on a bike in a while or simply lack confidence.The sessions are open to all, especially families with small children, and take place in Knole Park and the Brands Hatch racing track.
Knole Park offers a 90-minute, gentle paced ride with breaks and traffic free paths in the stunning ancient deer park.
Brands Hatch provides an opportunity to ride on the renowned racing circuit for up to two hours at no set pace and includes some gentle hills.
Cllr Robert Piper, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing and Health, said: “These bicycle rides are perfect for first time cyclists or people who want to get back into the sport but have lost their confidence.”
“Both sessions are in great locations and the professionals are on hand to help you all the way.”
