Wheels 2 Rails family daysFamily Cycling

Free cycling themed family days are on offer at Evesham and Pershore Railway Stations during August.

We have joined forces with Worcestershire Community Rail Partnership

to offer the Wheels 2 Rails days.

The next event will take place between 10am and 5pm on:

Saturday 28 August at Pershore Railway Station 

Cyclists can bring their bikes along anytime for a free maintenance check from Dr Bike while there will also be a chance to have them security marked, so they can be tracked if they are stolen.

Book a free family Bikeability cycling session 

Free family cycling sessions are also taking place on both Wheels 2 Rails days between 10am and midday and 2pm and 4pm.

The sessions are run by a qualified Bikeability instructor and will help families learn to ride together with confidence in different situations, including cycling to a local railway station. Places are limited so sessions must be pre-booked.

The Pershore session starts from Pershore Leisure Centre.
