Challenging rides on the road for adults only

If you’ve been riding a road bike for a while, and perhaps been thinking about joining a cycling club, these rides – brand new for 2012 – are for you. The prospect of a speedy pace over twenty to fifty miles, and the strong likelihood of some hills thrown in along the way, means our Ride Strong Plus rides are not for the faint-hearted.

Le Tour de Lancs rewards you with breathtaking views of the many towers and follies of Lancashire from Darwen tower to Holcombe. But you have to work for it! Put your hill climbing to the test and enjoy the relaxed descents through beautiful villages and superb countryside. Some busier roads, so if you're looking for tips on riding on the roads you're in great hands with your experienced and confident Ride Leaders. Come ride with us in hilly and lovely Lancashire!

If you've already tried one of our Ride Strong Plus rides and you're ready for the next challenge, why not try a British Cycling Sportive?
