Car Park opposite La Cava Restaurant Wigan Road Hindley WN2 3BU
This ride will start and finish at the car park opposite La Cava Restaurant Hindley. We will take the cycle path up to the canal and then join the Whelley Loop Line towards Haigh Hall and although this includes some uphill climbs we then take the canal towpath downhill into Wigan where we will cross over the canal and follow the towpath for a while before joining a section of National Cycling Network's Route 55 through Platt Bridge and then over Amberswood Common Hindley and back to the car park.
The total ride is approximately 12 miles along cycle paths, canal towpath and quiet side roads and is suitable for all types of bikes except those with stabilisers or trailers.
Ladies are advised to wear a helmet and suitable clothing in case of bad weather. If you have a spare inner tube for your bike please bring this along although if you don't have one please don't let this stop you from joining the ride. Also you may wish to bring along a drink to keep you hydrated during the ride.
We will have the opportunity to have a chat and drinks/refreshments at the Hockery Brook Pub, which is a short walk from the car park, at the end of the ride.
