There’s plenty of fabulous two-wheeled activities for families on offer at the National Trust’s historic Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire over the summer holidays – topped off with the OVO Energy Tour of Britain’s visit on Saturday 8 September.

Families are invited to join in with the Stage Seven celebrations in the park when the Tour returns to Nottinghamshire. Ahead of the race passing through, there will be a signposted, family-friendly route for visitors to either explore for themselves or discover during a group ride.

There will also be cycling games and activities, including a slow bicycle race and penny farthings, before the world’s best riders pass along Lime Tree Avenue and Clumber Lane en route to Mansfield. (Normal admission charge apply, all of the extra activities are free once in the park).

Before then, why not take advantage of Clumber Park’s cycle hire scheme?

Also, new this summer are Learn to Ride Fridays, designed to help younger children get their stabilisers off or move from balance bikes to pedal bikes. This is a free activity, forming part of the Clumber Park Summer of Sport, and is led by qualified and experienced members of staff.

British Cycling Let’s Ride pop-up event is on Tuesday 21 August. Join the British Cycling team on the park between 11:00 and 15:00. There will be a closed road marshalled circuit for participants to do as many laps as they want on, along with cycling games and activities.
