Heading off on this popular steady ride, we will cycle from Middlebrook retail park along shared cycle paths, roads and then experience the woodland trails of Borsdane and Amber woods . The café break will be at Haigh Hall. Our return journey is mainly on roads.

Please ensure your bike is in good working condition. Check your gears and brakes and if they are a little bit stiff/rusty and you are not sure how to remedy, take it to your local bike shop. They will be happy to take a look. Although helmets are only recommended by law and not deemed to be essential, anyone not wearing a helmet will not be able to join the ride unfortunately.

We do have bikes and helmets to hire if required. Please email [email protected] for further information .

We never leave anyone behind
