Although our regular session have stopped we are trying to put on Wheels for all Rides.
This is a wheels for all ride almost entirely on cycle paths following a popular 7 mile signed cycling route. Pick up a copy of the Swindon Cycle Map for all the info but basically we go from The County Ground to GWH, Via Green Bridge, Liden, and Covingham then and back via Coate Water to the County Ground. There is an option to make the ride shorter if necessary

Once you've done it with us you'll be able to do it again on your own

99% of this route is traffic free; a few hundred yards or so is on the residential road by Queens Drive

We will find a nice place to stop about half way so you can refresh yourself and have a chat

In these difficult times please try and bring a face mask; you will only have to wear it in the event of first aid being required. For all our rides you should bring at least a spare inner tube and a pump. If your wheels are bolted on then a spanner that fits the nuts is also essential. Helmets are not compulsory for adults but most definitely recommended. All children must wear a helmet. You should dress appropriately for the weather, and consider bringing your mobile phone along with credit or debit card for the kiosk at the end (They only take card payment at the moment)

We especially welcome newbies! We can even lend you a Bike and Helmet.

If you are a regular Wheels For All client please [email protected] and let us know that you want to come on the ride so we can get the right bike ready for you
