Are You a Royal or a Roundhead? This is a ride with everything, It starts at a pub with a downhill, finishes at a pub with a downhill, has a cake stop & an ice cream stop. What more do you want from a ride? Beautiful scenery? Got that - cycling from Tockholes we'll loop around Feniscowles & Hoghton, on to Brindle & Heapey then off to Rivington & Horwich before heading back for home. Cake? Yes, we'll stop for cake in Rivington & we'll have an ice cream stop too. Reservoirs? You'll see more than you can shake a stick at. Anything else? Great company, and of course every great ride has it's challenges, so expect some of those as well! This is another of our unique rides, this time planned by Hugh & pre ridden with the help of Graham, both SkyRide Ride Leaders. We'll ride at a steady pace of 11-12 mph on this ride and we'll keep our pace at a level so that we can all stay together & have a really pleasant ride. We can all do the lumps at our own pace & we'll reform at the top. Please check your bike over the night before the ride, tyres inflated, all bolts tight, lubricated. Clothing, Helmet & lights checked & ready. Please aim to be ready to ride 15 mins before the ride start time, getting away on time is good for everyone. I'm a SkyRide Ride Leader leading guided rides & I'm also a trained route planner - I enjoy my cycling & appreciate it even more when I have people to ride with. Our group is called the FC's - Friendly Cyclists & you can read all about us & join the group here: Once you join the group you'll get an automatic invite for every ride, you will never miss a ride again!
