"Santa Claus is coming to town" why not join in with the Christmas themed ride, fancy dress is optional the Christmasy the better. Meet up on the canal near the Bottom Lock.  Sat nav will take you to Wood's street which is the approach road to Trencherfield Mill and the canal is alongside of the mill car park. Nice leisurely ride from Leeds Liverpool Canal Bottom Lock up to Wigan Lane Orchid Room Cafe then returning to the start point. Approximately 8 miles in total along a canal towpath suitable for all types of bikes and a purpose built tarmac cycle path.  Steady climb along the Leeds Liverpool Canal before stopping at Orchid Room cafe, Wigan Lane to have a rest and a refuel.  Return part of the ride is all downhill finishing at the Bottom Lock. Ladies and Children are welcome but children MUST wear a helmet to take part.  All levels of fitness and ability are welcome we ride to the slowest pace.  This is a social ride with fun a major part of the ride. If you have a spare inner tube bring it along as this is much easier to change than to try and mend a puncture on the trail, but don't let this put you off if you haven't got one. It would also be useful to have lights as although this is traffic free it is getting darker much earlier especially with the dull weather we are having at present.
