To all Metro members, especially those who flagged up tandem riding in our recent club survey.
I am delighted to inform you that in partnership with Wheels for Wellbeing and Lee Valley Regional Park Authority we have booked the outdoor road course on Sunday 7th August from 12:00-16:00.
We plan to have 10 tandems and front riders available from 12:00-14:00 and from 14:00-16:00, therefore 20 members can enjoy cycling around this off road site. We will arrange meet and greet with volunteers at Stratford International station for both events.
Members need to be over the age of 16yrs and / or Minimum height 5ft or 153cm as there are only adult size tandems for this event.
Parents, partners and volunteers are also welcome and they will be able to use bikes and helmets on the day, Children must be aged 10yrs or over to cycle and have taken Bikeability level 2 or equivalent, as they will sharing the road track with the tandems and other riders. I hope the weather is fine so we can enjoy a picnic outdoors in the surrounding area.

We have also booked the Velodrome along with 7 specialist bikes and front riders for a 2 hour session on Sunday 21st August from 19:00-21:00.
