Hainault Forest Family Ride

Starting Point & Postcode
Car park on Lambourne Road opposite Chigwell Row infant school Hainault Forest IG7 6EZ
Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
1 hours 25 mins  (45 mins cycling)
Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.
