Starting point

DN21 3TJ

A pan flat route, 15 miles, all tarmac suitable for any bike (including e-bikes) out to the little cafe at Messingham Zoo. Out via Susworth and the Trent Bank, returning much via Sand Lane and Black Bank to to Susworth and back to Scotter. Suitable for beginners, returners or anyone just wanting a leisurely ride out in good company. Helmets are recommended but under 16s must wear a helmet and be under the direct supervision of a responsible adult at all times. Probably not suitable for under 11 year olds given the distance and intended average speed, but you know your own children best!. The pace will be leisurely, aiming at 9 or 10 mph average, but no-one will be left behind. If that pace seems too slow (or fast) for you, please consider one of our other rides.

A gentle there and back ride, 15 miles, pan flat, suitable for beginners, returners or anyone just wanting a relaxing morning in good company with a coffee stop. We would hope to average 9mph but we always go at the speed of the slowest and no one is left behind.

The route is all tarmac suitable for road bikes, hybrids, mountain bikes etc. Electric power is ok too.

We will take a refreshment stop at the cafe at Messingham Zoo. But happy to stop if anyone needs a breather.

Helmets are advised and essential for under 16s, who should be under the control of a responsible adult at all times. The ride is not suitable for under 10s. Please bring a spare inner tube that fits your bike and a pump (but if thats a problem let me know beforehand - we can sort something out) Also bring money or cards for the coffee stop and a face covering for emergencies - not for wearing while riding! If you are suffering from Covid symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who has please do not come on the ride.

First-timers welcome!
