Summer is finally on the horizon – at last! What better way to experience a little more sunshine each day than to make more journeys by walking, cycling and scooting.

Our Sport and Physical Activity team and all our wonderful partners in Barnsley will be showcasing the Active Travel offer that can be accessed by all Barnsley residents. This will involve an action packed and informative day at Elsecar heritage Centre over the Spring Bank Holiday half term.

Activities on offer will be:

  • Balance Bike Indoor Mini-Skatepark – a chance for mini-riders to master their balance on our purpose-built ramps.
  • Ramp Up area – Grab a scooter or BMX and tackle some ramps on our indoor course.
  • E-Bike Test area – Come and meet the fleet of E-Bikes available for short term loan and most importantly, have a go.
  • Dr Bike Pit Stop – Bring your own bike for a FREE safety check and tune up with one of our experienced bike mechanics.
  • Led Ride from Elsecar Heritage Centre.
  • Led Walk from Elsecar Heritage Centre.
  • Information tables – Find out more about the various Walking and Wheeling Active Travel activities on offer in the borough to make the most of your short journeys.

Our Sport and Physical activity staff will be on hand to help at every stand, so there is something for all skills levels and all ages.

All of the activities are free, informal and relaxed. Equipment is provided and there's no need to sign up beforehand - just come along and join in the fun!
