CYCLESOLIHULL is joining this year with ‘Fun-in- the-Park’ at Tudor Grange to promote a special day on Sunday (September 25) for local cyclists.

There will be a series of leisurely community rides in the afternoon, starting at 12 different locations in Solihull, and all converging on the High Street before going down to Fun-in-the-Park for 3pm.

Stephen Holt, Cyclesolihull’s co-ordinator, said: “We hope that our rides will encourage people to visit the town centre and Fun-in-the-Park by bike.

“Cycling to an event like this is fun and environmentally-friendly.”
