Starting point


We will begin with a loop of Lydiard Park with its beautiful house and grounds, and then take cycle paths through West Swindon to Shaw Forest Park. After a brief spin along the old railway path behind the park, we'll loop around Mouldon Hill's lake and head back to Lydiard Park via cycle paths.

Come and join us for a tour of the West Swindon parks! A relaxed, traffic-free ride, open to all abilities. Children who are either competent cyclists or on parents' bikes are also welcome.

Almost entirely traffic-free paths, with only a short section of very quiet road.

We will stop for a cafe break in Lydiard Park after the ride.

Helmets are essential. Please wear weather-appropriate clothing, and bring money for a cafe stop. Please bring a bike lock for the cafe stop if you have one, but I will have spare if not.

All riding abilities welcome, including new riders. We're a friendly group, and will ride at a relaxed pace - hope you can join us!
