Guided cycle rides

Rides are free and designed to allow you to ride at your own pace to increase your heart rate and improve well being. A range of rides are offered to get everyone involved.

None of the rides are a race so you can take them at your own pace. All routes will be fun, safe and interesting with the distance, duration and terrain of the ride varying according to the type of ride.

Our ride leaders are passionate and keen cyclists, they have been trained to guide groups of people and are employees of Hillingdon Council. They also have been trained on first aid to help if necessary.
