Lots of regular group rides are held in Enfield for a range of interests and abilities:
Are you a bit new to cycling, coming back to it after a long time, or want to ride with your kids? Then these rides are for you! Run by experienced volunteers at Enfield Cycling Campaign, they are led, marshalled rides at a gentle pace using the new cycle infrastructure, green spaces and quiet roads, with a decent café stop halfway through. The dates are below – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details:

Saturday 28 July 2018
No Easy Riders on this date – but join London FreeCycle instead! Central London closes its roads to traffic on Saturday 28 July to let people of all ages and abilities take to bikes in their thousands. You can either catch the train into town with your bike, or join one of our safe, led rides and cycle the whole way. We lead two feeder rides from Enfield: one from Edmonton Green and one from Palmers Green.
Please register if you plan to join a led ride: https://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/events/freecycle/
