Get on your bike and cycle!

Keep fit and build your biking confidence whilst exploring different areas in South East London.

Our exciting new cycling scheme, in partnership with Lewisham Homes and Cycle Grants London, offers free fortnightly bike rides in Deptford throughout the summer.

Exploring different areas each time, Cycle Deptford is a fun way to help you get fit and see more of your surrounding neighbourhoods.

Who can join?

The rides are suitable for everyone aged 7+ (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult), so you can bring your family along for a friendly Saturday morning cycle ride with your local community.

You don’t need to be a cycling expert either – our leaders have undergone special training to help people get back on the saddle, and build up beginners’ cycling confidence.
