Bike lovers – from seasoned cyclists to first time pedallers – can enjoy riding on closed roads on Sunday 9th June during the HSBC UK – Let’s Ride Birmingham event. Details of how to register can be found on the event website.
Ride from Balsall Heath
Unlike previous years, the closed road route won’t include Calthorpe Park. However, the lovely folks at Big Birmingham Bikes are leading two bike rides to the event in the City Centre AND hiring out bikes for anyone who needs one!
Gather from 10:30am at Clifton Road junction with Moseley Road (the carpark on the corner) OR gather at 10:30am in Calthorpe Park by the Pavilion. Anyone who needs a bike can arrange hire at that point.
Riders will then leave together to pedal along quiet routes to the start of the closed road event in the City Centre.
Let’s Ride Birmingham details
We’re closing the roads to traffic in Birmingham on Sunday 9th June and hosting a free cycling festival for everyone.
There’s lots to do – from fun activities and challenges for the whole family to music, local street food and live stunt shows. Plus a few surprises on the day …
Come along and enjoy seeing your city from the saddle. You don’t have to do the full distance – just as much or as little as you want. You don’t need to be an experienced cyclist. There will be no cars on the road, so you can wobble, zig-zag and stop as much as you like.
It’s free, fun and the perfect activity for the whole family. So, what are you waiting for?
Everyone’s invited – see you there!
