Cicleparents is a group of active parents, mums and dads and other primary carers of children, living or working mainly in or around the London boroughs of Camden & Islington (C of Camden and I of Islington Cycling + Parents).
We share an enthusiasm for cycling and organize weekly rides to fit around our busy routines. Typical rides include early weekday rides (before the kids are awake!) around Regents Park (20km) and up to Highgate (22km). Weekend rides include Epping Forest Box Hill, Surrey and London to Brighton. We also try to undertake at least one major race ride a year.
Of course we would not be Cicleparents without our regular rides that involve our children and families.
Cicleparents provides a great opportunity to keep fit and share knowledge and experiences of parenting.
Being a local group, we can pool information about schools, local activities, resources and so on.
Our group comprises both men and women so we all understand the demands of family life and are keen to encourage each other. Please feel free to join our group, no matter how casual. You will be surprised at how invigorating it is to participate in cycling with like-minded people!
As we are just emerging, there are no meeting fees and joining fees as yet. But we aim to start as a British Cycling Federation approved cycle club after a benchmark of a certain number of regularly attending members has been reached, at which point we will have to introduce an annual membership.
