Things to do Free
Pedal On UK

Anyone pedalling to work through east London on Friday August 16 can stop off in Victoria Park and be rewarded for their efforts and eco-friendly transport choice. Cycling charity Sustrans is combining forces with virtuous-food purveyor Rude Health to offer a free breakfast to all comers. Once you’ve refuelled, if you’ve got time to hang around, or you’ve got the kids in tow, there are plenty of family-friendly activities to get involved in. They include BMX displays from world-record holder Matti Hemmings, live music, face-painting, a pedal-powered cinema and Rollapaluza roller racing (think fun, ultra-competitive spinning). Mechanics will be on hand to offer free bike-safety checks and you’ll be able to get your bicycle security marked. Early birds can choose to meet at Wanstead tube station at 8am and join a five-mile ride to the park. The event is part of a series of free community festivals and family bike rides organised all over the country by Sustrans this summer.
