Add to calendar

The rides are open to all and we put an emphasis on fun and friendship. To join the programme you don't even need to worry about a bike as one of our officers can arrange for bike and helmet hire (if you contact them before the ride), so all you need to do is turn up at the meeting point ready to ride and meet new people.
The Forest Side to High Beach route is the easiest of our forest cycles. Starting at Forest Side we head down the bridal paths behind Theydon Bois Golf club before heading up to High Beach for a break at the famous Tea huts and enjoy the views.
