Sun 10 June: "Greenacre Bicycle Rally" (some of it on the demoted Brian Coleman's 'Roads, Roads, Roads, and Roads')

"Now in its fifth year, The Greenacre Bicycle Rally is firmly established as the largest cycling event in the borough. Never before has there been such a fun way of raising the awareness and use of cycles in our area. Picture the scene - massed cycles, novelty bikes, fancy dress, music, flags and balloons. The cycling event of the year! Suitable for competent cyclists of all ages. (Under-12s must be accompanied.)

"We will set out on a 3-mile triangular circuit from artsdepot to Friern Barnet, Whetstone and back to North Finchley. Then we will head south for a further 2-mile circuit that takes in Church End, Finchley. There will be a refreshment and entertainment break at Victoria Park. This first stage of the rally will total 5 miles.

"After lunch, we will set off on the ‘Green Ride’ section of the rally at 2-15pm. This 5½-mile stage will take a scenic and largely car-free route along cycleways and brooks, and will finish at Swan Lane Open Space (¾-mile north of artsdepot). Tea and refreshments will be available.

"The rally will be escorted by trained stewards, St John Ambulance and police cyclists. Assemble for the start outside artsdepot, N12 OGA from 10am, for a 12noon departure. All participants must be registered. Please note Dr Bike and the registration table will close at 11-30am. Please try to pre-register by phone or email."
