Saturday 9th July session cancelled

Unfortunately we will be unable to hold a session on Sat 9th July due to the Wireless Festival taking place in Finsbury Park. In previous years we have been able to use the Althletics Track, but it is currently out of action with improvement works. These works have overrun and the track is now predicted to open sometime in August.
We will continue to hold the Tuesday Pedal Power sessions on 5th & 12th but these will probably move to another area of the park. Look out for signs.

Sat 25th June session goes ahead

We are going ahead with today’s session after initially thinking we would have to cancel it. We found out rather late that the council is no longer holding a festival in the park this weekend. Apologies to our members for the late notice and hope to see all of you this afternoon.

The upgrade work on the Athletics Track means that our Tuesday (and Wednesday) sessions have temporarily moved to the Basketball Court area. The fabulous facelift including a high quality new track and landscaping is due to be completed by the end of May.

All-ability Cycle Races – Athletics Track

On Saturday 1st August, we have a special session planned. As well as riding the bikes as usual we’ll be organizing some timed cycle races. Everyone’s invited to participate, just come along on the day and let us know you want to join in. There’ll also be a BBQ so bring your appetites.
We’ll be on the Althetics track and look forward to seeing you there.

Sat 4th on the Althletics Track

On Saturday 4th July the park will be busy hosting the Wireless music festival. The usual basket ball court will be used by the festival so
our cycling session will be held on the Athletics Track.

We suggest you use the Endymion Road & Green Lanes entrances to avoid the festival. If you are coming by car, tell the guard on the gate that you have a disabled passenger and are going to Pedal Power Cycling Club.

We look forward to seeing you next Saturday!
