This weekend, why not join a tree planting bike ride from Brighton to Langley Vale Wood in Epsom to help The Woodland Trust plant 7,000 native trees, including beech, rowan, hawthorn and oak?
Organised by TimeToCycle, Brighton BikeTrain and the Woodland Trust, with food provided by the Brighton Real Junk Food Project, it s one of three rides descending on Langley Vale – the other two from London.
Leaving on Friday 20th Jan – 9.30 at the Level, you’ll finish the ride at Headley Village Hall where you’ll stay the night (Don’t forget your sleeping bag & mat). You’ll be served a delicious dinner prepared by The Real Junk Food Project.
Saturday morning will start with a breakfast prepared by The Real Junk Food Project before everyone heads out to Langley Vale Wood. There you will meet the The Woodland Trust team who’ll supply tools and saplings from 10am-3pm.
This event will plant 7,000 trees. Eventually, the Woodland Trust aims to plant 200,000 trees at Langley Vale Wood, and in February there will be a second tree planting bike ride so if you can’t make this one then do come along in February.
