We like Dinosaurs and we like cycling…. so what could be better than this? You are welcome to join us for a short ride suitable for young people, adults and children – in fact anyone who fancies a nice easy ride, mostly on quiet roads. The route passes through Langley Park and South Norwood Country Park and will stop at the café in Crystal Palace Park – near the dinosaurs! We will stop for an hour at the park, time for some food and to say hello to the dinosaurs. On the way back will be an opportunity to ride down South Norwood Country Park’s “ski slope”
We have arranged two start points, to provide a range of ride distances from 6 to 18 miles.
18 mile option: Start at the Panagua Bike shop, 50 Hayes Street, Bromley, Kent, BR2 7LD (www.panaguabikes.com). Arrive at 10-15am ready to ride off at 10-30am toward the dinosaurs! Round trip of 18 miles. About 4 hours riding for the round trip plus 1 hour in the park
12 mile option: Start at junction of Wickham Way and Barnfield Wood Road. Arrive at 11-00am, ready to ride off at 11-15am toward the dinosaurs! Round trip of 12 miles and also misses out the hill that leads out of Hayes. About 3 hours riding for the round trip plus 1 hour in the park
