Havering first of London Mayor’s Biking Boroughs to host cycling event

HAVERING will be the first of London Mayor Boris Johnson’s Biking Boroughs to host a dedicated cycling event this year.

Called Havering Bikewise, the day will include performances by stunt cyclists, a cycle polo tournament and led bike rides.

The activities will take place on Sunday, March 6 at Hornchurch Country Park and will be free.

Cllr Barry Tebbutt, Havering Council’s cabinet member for the environment, said: “Cycling is a great way to get around, as well as having benefits for our health and wallets.

“With a new cycling greenway under construction in the borough, there has never been a better time to get in the saddle.
