Cyclists will be able to get a free bike check and security markings to help keep their bikes safe, and hear more about how the parks are encouraging safe and considerate cycling. We’ll also have an ‘Exchanging Places’ lorry at the events (except Regent's Park) – this is where cyclists can to sit in the driver’s seat and experience what the driver can and can’t see.
Our team will be available at the following locations:
- Kensington Gardens (The Broad Walk), Monday 10th June, 4pm - 7pm
- The Regent’s Park (Outer Circle near Macclesfield Bridge) Tuesday 11th June , 4pm - 7pm
- Brompton Cemetery (The Great Circle near the Chapel), Wednesday 12th June, 4pm – 7pm
- Greenwich Park (Great Cross Avenue), Thursday 13th June, 4pm - 7pm

The Royal Parks’ Bike Week activities are part of a wider project to improve cycling across the parks.
- Embarking on an ambitious journey to develop a long-term Movement Strategy. The strategy will aim to set a long-term vision for how park visitors will access, experience and move within the parks. We currently have the first phase of consultation open for public comment until July 14th. Visit www.royalparks.org.uk/movement for more information;
- improvements to a range of junctions, entrances and exits to the parks to make them safer for all users including cyclists;
- continued work with Transport for London and the Mayor’s Office on the development of the Cycle Superhighway to make it as safe as possible for cyclists; and
- the development of behavioural change initiatives to encourage all park users to be considerate to each other including improved signage and information.
