Chingford May Day Fayre - Route Riders

For Chingford May Day Fayre on Saturday 4 May, we pay tribute to the changing seasons, fresh growth, new life, a positive future and historic and modern traditions that celebrate community and workers unity.

Chingford May Day Fayre encourages visitors to cycle to Chingford Plain on a special road route decorated with enchantments from the Bicycle Ballet Company. At Chingford Plain, visitors are invited to build our May Day bonfire, make kindling and fear masks and visit the Wise Woman of the Forest. It will be an opportunity to go back to basics with a day in the Forest with music, song and pageantry. The day will conclude with a Feast on the Plain before we ceremonially burn our fears and kindle our hopes for the year to come.

Come on your bike and help cyclists get to Chingford Plain.

We are encouraging visitors to travel to May Day Fayre via cycling routes across the borough. It’s great if you have a good knowledge of the local area,, but you will be given a thorough briefing about your route
