If you’re fairly confident on your bike and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, our Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills along the way, rides take place on mainly quiet roads with plenty of sights along the way. Rides are between 6 and 20 miles long, at a moderate pace of between 7 and 10 miles an hour. 

Starting at Manor Farm Road car park in Bitterne, this seven mile Steady ride invites you to follow the River Itchen to the Old Man's Bridge, then uses cycle paths all the way to Itchen Valley Country Park where you can stop at the cafe and refuel. The kids can play at the themed playground, plus there's an optional off-road circuit around the park. Highlights include Southampton's oldest bridge, river wildlife, visitor centre and wind turbine and the Saxon Church of St Mary's. The ride follows traffic-free paths and suburban roads and is suitable for families and beginners.
