Get Active in The Forest is also holding a Get Cycling session and a Learn to Ride session from 10am on Tuesday, March 27.

The Get Cycling session is perfect for families and is led by a qualified instructor. It starts at Maurice Lea Memorial Park, in York Road, Church Gresley, and takes in the Conkers Circuit and the best of The National Forest. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.

As part of the Get Active in the Forest’s Bikeability Plus scheme the Learn to Ride session is designed to teach children how to ride a bike in a safe, traffic free environment with a short led cycle around Maurice Lea Memorial Park.

Anyone aged four and above can build their skills and confidence on two wheels at the Learn to Ride sessions - whether they are just starting out or want to use their bike more often.

Bike hire is available for both of the sessions but riding your own bike is preferred, with booking essential.

Cllr Peter Smith, Chairman of Active South Derbyshire, said: “These days are packed full of entertainment and ensure young people throughout the District have free, local activities to keep them busy throughout the Easter break.”
