A Lichfield cycling initiative is holding a taster session in a bid to get more people in the saddle. The Cycle Rides for All scheme sees regular free rides to local destinations. And the group will be hosting a 3.5mile trip from Beacon Park at 11am on Sunday (July 27). A spokesperson said: “It is a great opportunity to see what group cycling is all about. “This ride has been given a difficulty rating of level one, which means it’s suitable for all. “We’re always keen to encourage more people to get on their bikes and take part in this healthy and fun activity.” To join in this free cycle ride, bring your bike to the Swinfen Broun Pavilion in the centre of Beacon Park. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. For more details call Freedom Cycles on 01543 411633 or Karl Sproston at Lichfield District Council on 01543 308846.
