Positive Parents Bike Hire Scheme

If you are looking for something that the whole family can do together why not hire some bikes and cycle in the beautiful countryside at Thames Chase.

As well as the usual 2 wheelers there is a range of adapted bikes including one for wheelchairs, tricycles and bikes that take passengers if you have someone who is unable or unwilling to cycle for themselves.

The children love to feel the wind in their hair, experience speed and everyone gets some fresh air and exercise at the same time.

The bikes can be found at:

Thames Chase Forest Centre, Pike Lane, Upminster

Weekends, school and public holidays until the end of October

10.30 to 4pm (last hire 3-3.30)

£3.00 per bike for 30 minutes

£5.00 for 1 hour

There is no need to book just visit the bike hut to choose your bike and fill in the hire form. Take this to the visitor centre to pay. You will need to leave your car keys as a deposit.

In order to make things easier, it is now possible to purchase a passport in advance for 6 sessions this will save you having to fill in a form each time.
