The Cycle Rides For All group stops off in Whittington on a recent ride

The latest in a series of free cycle rides in Lichfield is set to take place.

Organised by Lichfield District Council in partnership with North Lichfield Initiative, Freedom Cycles and Staffordshire County Council, the ride on Sunday (June 5) will go out to Fradley Junction and back.

The ten-mile ride will be at a gentle pace with plenty of stops along the way. Everyone is welcome to join in, no matter their age or cycling ability.

Jerry Trill, planning officer at Lichfield District Council, said:

“It was great to launch the new season of Cycle Rides for All in May. We had a brilliant ride to Swan Park in Whittington. Everyone is welcome to join us on Sunday, but if you can’t make it to this ride, there are plenty more in the series. We’ll be going to Whittington in July, and will have more challenging rides to Chasewater Country Park and Barton Marina later in the summer.”

The Cycle Rides for All take place on the first Sunday of every month until the final ride of the season on October 2. Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Jerry added:

“If you want to join us on the Fradley ride, just bring your bicycle, safety helmet, a picnic and yourself to Freedom Cycles in Lichfield at 10am on Sunday. If you don’t have a bike, you can borrow one of four new bikes that Staffordshire County Council has kindly loaned to us for the rides. Just call Just call Freedom Cycles on 01543 411633 to book a bike for free.”
