Starting point


The ride will leave Abbey Village via the reservoir route, heading up through Tockholes Woods. Riders will then explore the trails on Darwen Moor, before descending back to Abbey Village.

Bridleways and quiet backroads.

Riders should check the weather forecast in advance of the ride and dress according to the conditions. It is advisable to carry a waterproof and spare warm layers (parents/carers/appointed guardians should ensure that children are dressed appropriately for the outdoors - off roading involves riding in exposed locations and riders can get wet and cold very quickly). If children appear to be under-dressed for the conditions, the organisers may refuse participation due to health and safety reasons. Please bring an inner tube that fits the wheel size of your bike as this will ensure that you or the rider leader, if assistance is required, can deal with punctures swiftly and efficiently. Please bring plenty of snacks and fluids. If you have a health condition that may require you to take medication, please bring this with you and you may inform the Ride Leader in confidence, if you feel it relevant.

We never leave anyone behind
