Walking and Cycling Events Coming Up

I just got this e-mailed to me from TfL and as it has lots of info about forthcoming walking and cycling events in London, I thought it worth posting here:

'Give Your Car the Day Off' Festival
Look out for annual free family festivals taking place throughout London, between
16 - 22 September. Selected local streets across London will be closed to traffic but open for people and fun activities so you can learn about greener and healthier ways to travel. For this and other events click on

Big WOW Day
The Big Walk on Wednesday takes place on 24 September and encourages children and parents to walk all or part of the way to school at least once a week. If you have children attending school or would simply like to know more about the Big WOW and the Walk to School campaign click on

Walk to Work
Living Streets' Walking Works campaign has re-launched their website which is full of handy hints and tips to keep you motivated on your walk to and from work. Visit today!

London Freewheel
Pedal from your front door with led rides from your local borough into Central London on Sunday 21 September, where there will be a traffic-free circuit for riders to enjoy. New cyclists and families are welcome and will be helped along the way by the dedicated marshal team. To find out more about the event click on

Central London hosts the start of this year's Tour of Britain on Sunday 7 September - a great day out for all Londoners. Alongside this, TfL will be hosting BikeJam; a free family- friendly, vibrant celebration of all things cycling related at Tower Hill. BikeJam will provide a fun day of activities, entertainment and experiences for all ages.
