Bush tucker challenge

24 October 2016, 2pm-4pm.

A short bike ride for all ages and abilities, stopping to forage for wild fruit in Bournville. We expect to find damsons, elderberries, and blackberries.   This ride will be off-road.  Click here to book places.

Booking is essential on all our rides for health and safety purposes.  On all of our group rides, the pace will be gentle, we will go at the pace of the slowest rider and participants are free to stop for a rest if they need to.

If you are booking on behalf of other people, particularly children, please use the group booking facility, and make sure you tell us about everyone taking part, and not just yourself.

Can I borrow a bike?


We have a limited number of bikes, child seats and trailers for hire.  Bikes must be booked in advance and arrangements made to pick them up made in advance.  Bikes can be collected on the day from Northfield Ecocentre if they are booked in advance, except for early morning rides where bikes cannot be collected on the morning of the ride.  Bikes are subject to availability.

We politely request that children attending group rides wear a helmet.  We have a small number of helmets for hire for these events only, subject to availability.  If your child does not have a helmet and you would like to borrow one for the ride you are attending, please complete a helmet hire enquiry form.  We also recommend that adults wear a helmet, and we have a supply of adult helmets available for the ride.   Please complete a helmet hire enquiry form.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?
