An exciting collaboration between Gravesham with Ebbsfleet Rotary and The Cyclopark Charity, Junior On Your Bike will on Sunday, 4 August, provide a fun, safe, and inclusive environment at Cyclopark with its traffic free tarmac circuit, 6km of mountain bike trails and specific teaching areas for everyone to enjoy!

There will be a combination of open sessions to turn up and have a go at as well as sessions led by expert coaches.  Don’t have a bike? No problem! There are bikes and helmets for hire to suit all ages. Available to book on the day.

Junior On Your Bike is born on Sunday, 4 August, from the long-established Rotary ‘On Your Bike’ charity cycle ride.

GwE Rotary President Mark Underwood said: “We have combined the wheel power of On Your Bike with the great cycle adventures at Cyclopark to provide a special day with proceeds going to charity as well.”

“This new event is a great way for children to try fun cycling activities in a safe environment and is part of our future direction to make even more opportunities available to the local community to benefit from the amazing 49 acre venue that is on its doorstep”, said Jonny Hamp, CEO of the Cyclopark Charity.
