Biking at Barking Riverside

Do you love jumping on your bike and feeling the wind rush through your hair? Or perhaps you prefer a more leisurely pedal? Either way, Barking Riverside could be the home for you!

Encouraging residents to get outdoors more, award-winning masterplan architects of Barking Riverside, Lifschutz Davidson and Sandilands, have designed a community for the 21st century which takes an integrated approach to healthy living.

Offering residents plenty of opportunities to get on their bikes, Barking Riverside has dedicated cycle paths already and they will run throughout the 443 acre development – and with Barking station just a 15 minute ride away, you can make cycling part of your daily routine or commute.

Creating yet more opportunity for residents to explore on two wheels, Parklands will sit alongside a significant new park called ‘The Wilds’, while ‘Biking Riverside’, a cycle hub offering a number of free services including ‘Doctor Bike’ and cycle lessons, is already established within Phase 1 of the masterplan.

For those who feel more comfortable on two feet rather than two wheels, a picturesque riverside public footpath runs along the 2km stretch of the Thames to the south of the site.

A selection of one bedroom shared ownership homes, which all have access to secure cycle storage, are available now at Parklands, with prices starting from £61,875 for a 25% share (FMV £247,500).

Two and three bedroom Shared Ownership apartments, and one to four bedroom homes through London Help to Buy are also available.
