Cycle Hire Reopening

You can hire Adult, Children's and Adapted Cycles from 2nd August

We are pleased to say that we can now open cycle hire at the Forest Centre. We have put in place procedures to comply with Government COVID secure guidelines, so please support us by following these when using cycle hire.

Thames Chase Trust, in conjunction with its partners TrailNet and Positive Parents, offers Cycle Hire for all abilities at the Forest Centre. Havering Positive Parents “Cycling for All” project is based at our cycle hire point; these adapted cycles are available for hire at the same price as the mainstream cycles.

Cycle hire will be closed Mondays and open Tuesdays to Sundays 10.30am to 2.30pm during August and Weekends and School Holidays during September and October.

There are adult and children’s cycles, a tag-a-long, buggies that can be attached to adult cycles and adapted bikes including a tandem, a double bucket, wheelchair cycle and various trikes.   

Hire Charges - Adult and Children’s Cycles, Buggy or Tag-a-long

  • £4 for ½ hour
  • £6 for 1 hour

If you wish to hire a cycle please go the waiting area in front of the visitor centre and the member of staff will assist you. When returning cycles please place them in the returns area to be cleaned and sanitised by staff.

To help ensure your safety, we will have hand sanitizers available at the cycle hire point and waiting area. Cycles and helmets will be cleaned and sanitised on their return, cycle helmets are supplied free of charge.

If you are a regular hirer you can purchase a passport that will allow you six sessions without having to fill the paperwork in each time you cycle. These are being held at 2019 prices of £18 for six ½ hour sessions and £30 for six 1 hour sessions.

Enjoy the Community Forest by cycling on the surfaced paths here at the Broadfields site. This project is part of the Trust’s partnership work in supporting local people to get out into the countryside and to use it to improve their general health and well-being.
