Cycling for Health - 12 May

Hooks Marsh car park




The Cycling for Health programme is a series of weekly led rides in the Lee Valley Reginal Park organised by Epping Forest District Council. Cycling is a great activity that can help you get active and improve your health without high costs or high intensity activity that can leave you aching or fatigued. Furthermore, cycling is a very low impact activity so it can also be enjoyed by absolutely everyone. The rides take place on a weekly basis.

The routes used are generally traffic free as we stick to bridleways and paths. The rides are approximately 10 to 15km (6-10miles) and although this may sound short the routes differ in intensity and terrain. Currently we won’t be having a break at a café, so please bring a drink and a snack and the sessions will be one hour and 45 minutes long. 

This ride is at Hooks Marsh Car ParkFishers Green Lane, Crooked Mile, Waltham Abbey.  EN9 2ED. Grade Easy.


Routes are flat and on walking/cycling paths where participants can keep a constant steady pace.


These routes will have varying gradients and may be on bridle way or solid earth paths. There will still be large sections of flat path.
