Adults turned into big children at the Arts Cycle Trail on May 9, where children, parents and friends rediscovered the fields in Hanworth on their bikes and deciphered clues left behind in hidden golden gnome statues, with the help of mascot Felty the bear.
During the four-mile ride, led by Hounslow Cycling volunteers, riders made some fabulous artwork at fun educational pitstops before jumping back on their bikes to continue enjoying and embracing the beautiful surroundings with their children.
It was once a myth that a community of gnomes lived in De Brome Fields and young attendees helped to build them a new home in the forest before indulging in a lunchtime spread.
Feltham Arts worked in partnership with Nature Links and Hounslow Cycling to put on the Arts Cycle Trail, funded by the Heathrow Community Fund.
Charlotte Skinner, Feltham Arts' outreach project manager, said: "The day was a great success and we had an incredibly sunny and enjoyable afternoon - considering it was such a grey morning!
"It was a fun-filled and exciting day where participants went on a unique journey to discover a very big secret in Crane Park!"
