A community bike ride taking place in Palmers Green next week will help cyclists “work off” their Christmas pudding and take in the area’s parks and “quiet streets”.

The event being organised by Enfield Cycling Campaign is free and open to anyone to join, with the four-mile route being marshalled so that it will be safe for children to join in. There’s even a chance that “Santa might turn up”.

Ride organiser David Hilliard told the Dispatch: “We want to get as many people as possible on their bikes after Christmas and just enjoy the whole experience of riding together.

“For children lucky enough to have got a bike from Santa, it’s the ideal opportunity to try it out. It will be a fun ride and we expect lots of young children and their parents and grandparents to join us.

“As usual our ride will be led and marshalled by experienced volunteers from Enfield Cycling Campaign.”

The community bike ride starts from Broomfield Park’s main gates in Aldermans Hill at 11am on Friday, 29th December. For more information and to register:
