A BIKES in the Park event takes place tomorrow in Cluny Square.

The event, between 1pm and 4pm, will offer chances for children to try mountain biking on their unique North Shore track and younger children to test their skills on a Go Ride course.

The day is being sponsored by M & L Ambulance Services Ltd, and has been organised by local Tory councillor Peter Ashley and the Pear Tree Association from Cluny Square in collaboration with Cycle Southend.

Mark Flewitt, Southend’s councillor for transport, said: “I would like to say a big thank you to all involved in the organisation of this event, in particular councillor Ashley and Cycle Southend.”

“This was a great success last year, with nearly 200 children turning up.

"It would be great if we could emulate this success further this year, so make sure you get yourself down to Cluny Square.”
