This week we are hosting Bike Week 2017 across London’s Royal Parks. Cyclists will be able to get a free bike ‘MOT’ and police security marking, and hear more about how the parks are encouraging safe and considerate cycling.
Our team will be available at the following locations:
- Kensington Gardens (The Broad Walk), Monday 12 June, 4pm - 7pm
- The Regent’s Park (The Slips, south east of Macclesfield Bridge), Tuesday 13 June, 4pm - 7pm

The Royal Parks’ Bike Week activities are part of a wider project to improve cycling across the parks.
- 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.
