Whether you would prefer to ride or scoot on stabilisers or balance bikes, or sat in a child seat or trailer, all are welcome to join in.

Kate and Rob Collier, the organisers, said: "The enthusiasm of parents and kids for taking part in the weekly school bike bus to Honeywell Primary School, gave us the idea of putting on the first Kidical Mass bike ride in Dines Green.

"We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone, it’s a lot of fun to ride together as a group."

The event aims to encourage movement among children and young people by bike and on foot, with hopes of them continuing to do so into adulthood.

Worcester began participating in Summer 2022, pulling in 60-70 participants each time.

After the ride, families are invited to wind down with some cardboard craft activities.

Reliant Cycle Services will be providing maintenance support for the bikes, dealing with minor tweaks, such as brakes and gears.

Kim Price, a parent who volunteers on the Honeywell Primary School Bike Bus, said: "I help out every Wednesday for the bike bus because it's such a rewarding thing to do, the kids are amazing.

"It's nice to be out in the open air rather than being stuck in a car and I'm working on my fitness alongside raising 3 children.

"I joined in my first Kidical Mass bike ride last month, it was so much fun and we’re excited for this Sunday."

Bike Worcester, the event's partner, is a community group working to improve cycling safety around the city.

It operates a bike recycling scheme refurbishing and providing bikes to those who need them.
