Are you thinking of cycling more? You are spoiled for choice in Brent thanks to a vast network of volunteers! A few groups have recently started offering some exciting activities in Brent with opportunities to give cycling a try, whatever your age or stage in life!

In addition to our own rides, regularly listed on our Eventbrite page and Cycle Buddies scheme, here’s a selection of what’s on offer in Brent.

Brent Council

Brent Council also offers free cycle training to children, adults, and families. The Council also partnered with Try Before You Bike which is a scheme that gives you an opportunity to hire a bicycle, an e-bike or a cargo bike for a month at a subsidised price.

Harlesden Mums Who Cycle

Harlesden-based mums Amandine and Mary have set up this group to support families wanting to cycle more for everyday activities. Events include KidicalMass get together and meetups to give people a chance to see the different family cycling set-up options out there.

KidsCycle

A group of Dads who took to go for evening cycle rides during lockdown have now turned their attention to the future. Making cycling as natural as kicking a ball with monthly meetups in different Brent parks.
