Family led bike rides in South Brum this summer

Inspired by the Tour de France? Join one of Cycle South Brum’s family led bike rides this summer. 

There are a mixture of rides for different abilities, from beginner upwards.  Booking is essential on all rides for health and safety purposes.  On all group rides, the pace will be gentle, going at the pace of the slowest rider and participants are free to stop for a rest if they need to.

Check out the Cycle South Brum website to find out when they’re riding and how you can get involved.

Summer in Cotteridge Park

Thanks to contributions from CoCoMAD suppliers & Birmingham Parks Service, funding from ParkLives and ActiveParksBirmingham there will be a full programme of FREE activities in Cotteridge Park this summer.  From FREE bouncy castles supplied by Knights Castles, to bushcraft camps & spray art there will be something for everyone.
Toys for toddlers, sewing & knitting, gossip & coffee, hide & seek – all the best bits of being in the park in the summer.
