Route rating

0 stars (0) Reviews

Starting at Lydiard Park, this 11 mile ride will explore the parks and lakes of West Swindon.

We will be riding mainly off-road on paved cycle paths and some narrower, rougher cycle tracks with short sections of quiet road. Some of the route takes in some fairly rough and bumpy cycle tracks so isn't suitable for trailers or tag-alongs.

We will take it at a social pace with stops to enjoy the scenery and take photos on the route. We will stop for a drink and a snack at one of the cafes at Lydiard Park at the end of the ride.

Helmets are compulsory and please make sure your bike is suitable for the route as there will be some rough, bumpy ground and it may be muddy in places. Bring water and snacks for the ride if needed and some money for refreshments at the end.

First-timers welcome!
