Free guided event. Join us as we spend our time cycling the off road public trails and more hidden cycle trails of Epping Forest.
A beautiful wilderness stretching from the outskirts of London deep into rural Essex. Spanning two-and-a-half thousand hectares, the forest has attracted national heroes such as Lawrence of Arabia, who once lived by its edge, as well as royalty who came to what was formerly a royal hunting ground as well as notorious highwaymen such as Dick Turpin. Luckily we won't encounter any highwaymen. However, we will see beautiful forest land, meadows, ponds, rivers, streams, bogs, maybe deer and some rare birds as well as some breath-taking views of London from afar. We will be riding through the depths of the forests.
We will meet at Chingford Railway Station at 11:30 am which is an over ground station and not an underground station. Trains can be caught on a regular basis (10.17am 10:32 am; 10:47 am) and takes approx. 27 minutes from Liverpool Street Station or any of the stations on the way east. Chingford is also easily accessed by road. The North Circular is close as is the M25. Alternatively you can use the underground part of the way to Walthamstow or part of the Central Line. Or of course you can CYCLE to the meeting point. Once we are all gathered together we will embark on our exploration and we will be circa 4.5 hours on our trip with several stops.
We will stop for lunch at one of the pubs in the heart of the Forest and a social sit down and then do a further exploration before heading on back in a circular fashion. Our journey will also end by a large pub for those who wish to have some form of refreshment....to quench their thirst. The pub is close to Chingford Station.Cross Country
