More than 2,000 children took part in the final event of a festival of cycling.

With the Tour de France set to start next month, children aged between eight and 11 have been taking part in the borough-wide Tour d'Enfield.

Spanning eight parks, activities included cycling, skateboard slaloms and trick parks.

Enfield Town park played host to the final leg of the scheme.

Councillor Chris Bond, Enfield Council’s cabinet member for environment, said: “This series of events is successful in so many ways. Children are getting great exercise, learning to cycle and understanding road safety.

The scheme, organised by Enfield Council, comes as part of a £30million investment from the Mayor of London aimed at increasing the numbers of people using bikes across the borough.
