PR1 4LX

We set off from Frenchwood and head along the Guildwheel path passing through Avenham and Millar parks and Preston docks. We then head alongside Blackpool rd and cross over to join the path along side the canal. At the end of this path we ride on quiet suburban roads to reach Ashton park where we will stop for a breather. We will cycle round the park then retrace our steps back to the Guildwheel path where we will make our way back to Preston Docks . we will stop here for a well earned coffee. After our break it is just a short ride along the cycle path to our starting point at French wood.
We will aim for an average speed of 8-10 miles an hour

This route is aimed at women who wish to extend their riding but do not wish to ride on the roads.

The route is almost entirely traffic free making use of the Preston Guild wheel cycle path. All bikes are suitable for this terrain but must be in a road worthy condition.

We will stop for a breather in Ashton park and then at Preston marina for a coffee or maybe an ice cream

Please bring some water and a snack and some money if you wish to purchase food and/or drink at the coffee stop. Be prepared for cold/warm/wet weather conditions. Riders are advised to wear a helmet and it is compulsory for those under 18 to wear a helmet. Prior to the start of the ride there will be a short bike check and safety brief but please make sure that your bike is in working order before joining the ride. Please carry a spare inner tube and tools necessary to carry out a puncture repair

This is a small friendly group of women who enjoy a gentle ride round the parks and cycleways in our area. We love to welcome new members and we never leave anyone behind.
