Cycle Hire

Open weekends, school holidays and daily during the summer

Look out for special Thursday morning cycling sessions for women in September (9:45-11:00 at the Forest Centre)

Cycle hire will also be open all-day on Thursdays during September (10:30-15:30 on 12, 19 and 26 September)

Cycle hire is now open for the summer (April-October 2019)

Cycle hire is open on Thursday afternoons (13:30-15:30), weekends and school holidays (both 10:30-15:30) until Sunday 27 October.

Visit the Forest Centre and hire cycles to ride around the Broadfields site during weekends & school holidays between 10:30-16:00. 

This is provided as part of the Trust's Health & Wellbeing programme. Also look out for our special event cycling days each summer!

We have available adult bikes, child bikes, trikes, tandems and trailers.  Cycle helmets are supplied for free.

We are being joined again by the Havering Positive Parents Outreach Project who have adapted cycles available for hire as part of their "Cycling for All" project. These adapted cycles are available for hire at the same prices as the mainstream cycles.

We are really pleased to be supporting this brilliant project for children with additional needs.

Hire Charges - Adult and Children’s Cycles:

  • £3 for ½ hour
  • £5 for 1 hour

Buggy or tag-a-long:

  • £3 for ½ hour
  • £5 for 1 hour

There is an option to purchase six sessions in advance. We will supply a passport that you can take to straight the cycle hire point, saving having to go to the visitor centre to pay each time. You will be able to purchase ½ hour and 1 hour sessions.

Thursday afternoon hire

In addition to weekend and school holidays, cycle hire is open on Thursday afternoons between 13:00-15:30, during the summer months.

These afternoons are particularly suited for people who wish to cycle around the picturesque Broadfields site on our all-weather surfaces at less busy times.
