Round the Island is the 60km (37miles) route for the Cycle the Solway. Last year this was a virtual event which we supported by Breeze rides, this year its back again. Ride with Helen & Sarah round the Solway for some company and to catch up on the latest (well, as much as we know!) This ride is invitation only and will follow the route as set out by Watchtree. Route map below. It is flat - hurrah, but as we know, a slight breeze (see what I did there?!) can make it feel really hilly, so make sure you bring a drink and maybe a snack as well to keep energy levels up. Bikes will be checked prior to the ride for roadworthiness so please arrive 15 minutes before so we can make sure we are fully prepared to start for 8am. See you there!

Quite country roads (mostly) on their Solway Plain.

Potential to stop, we can decide where on the day.

Ensure you have a spare tube for your bike, if you aren’t sure what you need, let me know and I can advise you what to get. You must wear a suitable cycling helmet on the ride, and I would recommend bringing a drink and a small snack.

We never leave anyone behind
