Why not kick start the fitness campaign with a challenging ride to get you in the habit of cycling to fun, fitness and friendship, with your first (or one of many) Breeze bike rides for the New Year New You   PLEASE NOTE that the route has changed slightly and this is now NOT Traffic Free. Why not come along to this leisurely paced cycle along traffic free cycle paths and canal towpaths is approximately 8 miles in total.  This bike ride goes along cycle paths/canal towpaths/quiet roads and is best suited to mountain bikes or bikes with off road tyres as there are some sections of the canal which if have experienced rain during this time of year and can have a few bumps and puddles along the way. The scenic route will now avoid Haigh Hall all together but will still have a cafe stop at the Orchid Room. There will still be the climbs as we get to the rest stop as well as downhills to take us back to the start point.   This is a social ride and we will have plenty of rest stops and ALWAYS cycle to the slowest rider so don't be put off from joining in. Start and finish is at Trencherfield Mill, canal side Helmets are advised to be worn during the ride and also wear suitable clothing taking account of the weather.  It's advisable to bring along an inner tube just in case of punctures as it isn't always easy to fix on the trail with a puncture repair kit. Children are welcome on this ride but all children must be accompanied by an adult taking part and MUST wear a helmet or will be unable to take part in the ride.  Children must be able to ride their bike confidently on cycle paths, along the canal towpath and quiet roads. There will be an opportunity to buy a drink and snack at the cafe so please bring some money along if you wish to use the cafe.   Any questions contact Sandra via email: breezenetworkwigan@gmail.com or facebook: www.facebook.com/pages/Breeze-Network-Wigan/130287580391410 or Twitter: http://twitter.com/BreezeWigan
