Lock and Quay (Breeze Ride)

This ride is just under 23 miles in total along the Leeds Liverpool Canal starting in Wigan.  We’ll stop midway stop at Lock and Quay, Chorley where we will sample the menu and stop for lunch.

The first part of the ride is a climb taking in all the locks from the bottom lock all the way to Top Lock at Aspull with the path almost all the way made from imprinted concrete.  From there the canal twists and turns with the towpath very flat until we take the lunchtime stop.

The path can get muddy and have a few puddles in places, especially if we have had rain but are suitable for mountain bikes.

This is a longer ride than usual but will ride to the slowest rider and can have rest stops should we need them as we head to Chorley.

Helmets are advised to be worn and if you have a spare inner tube please bring along as this is easier than trying to repair a puncture (especially if it is raining) but don’t let this stop you taking part.

Please bring a drink with you and any snacks you may require along the way.

Any questions contact me (Sandra) via email at breezenetworkwigan@gmail.com or see us on Facebook or Twitter.

Places are limited so please book online.
