Car Park, Hirst Lock, Hirst Lane, Shipley. Meeting at the Hirst Lock Car Park avoids the congested roads of Saltaire though we do pass through this World Heritage site.

This is an easy ride along the towpath to Toby's Tea Rooms near Apperley Bridge, with a very short stretch of quiet road at Dockfield. It’s a good idea to bring some water, snack to keep you going and money for if we stop at a cafe. Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part.  If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then.  We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind. All you need is a roadworthy bike, sensible clothing and a bit of enthusiasm. It helps to have a spare inner tube of the correct size - just in case. My contact number on the day is 07940 975 971 I look forward to you joining us.
