Free family cycle rides

Our professionally-led cycle rides return this summer. They're open to all, including families with small children. They're taking place in Knole Park and Brands Hatch.

Knole Park offers a 90-minute, gentle paced ride with breaks and traffic free paths in the stunning ancient deer park.

Brands Hatch provides an opportunity to ride on the renowned circuit that once hosted Formula 1 racing. You can cycle at your own pace for up to two hours on the route with gentle hills.

The rides are taking place on:

  • Sunday 17 July, 9am – Knole Park
  • Friday 19 August, 9am – Knole Park
  • Saturday 20 August, 9am – Knole Park
  • Monday 22 August, 10.30am and 2pm – Brands Hatch (now full)
  • Tuesday 30 August, 9am – Knole Park
  • Saturday 24 September, 10.30am and 2pm – Brands Hatch (now full)
