The Community Forest encourages cycling throughout its many sites.  This includes cycle hire at the Forest Centre, Mountain Biking at Ingrebourne Hill, and Thordon Country Park.

The primary use for Thames chase is for safe riding for all the family or as a stopping place for refreshments.

Cycling Clubs usually become affiliated members or full members of one or two organisations:

CTC: http://www.ctc.org.uk/local-groups
& British Cycling http://www.britishcycling.org.uk/clubfinder

 

Cycle clubs sit in roughly 3 categories:

1. 'Road' / Racing clubs - mostly stick to the road. interested mostly in performance and speed and increasing their performance (on the road).

2. Mountain biking - off roading

3. Touring clubs - most CTC clubs are touring clubs. More interested in sociable side of cycling, often take in sections of light off road such as Thames Chase type paths or bridleways.
