Shine, shine Christmas Star, Light this path of mine (Breeze Ride)

Join us for this traffic free canal side ride starting from Wigan Pier’s bottom lock taking you along the delights of Leeds Liverpool Canal. This is a dark ride to the bright twinkle lights house. The total ride is approximately 8 miles and is suitable for all types of bikes as the paths are imprinted concrete or recently laid compacted gravel.

There is scheduled rest stop but will have mince pies and Mulled wine (or feel free to bring your own snacks.

Most of the canal path is flat with a couple of climbs and lock gates to navigate along the way so suitable for women and children who are able to cycle along the canal.

It’s advised to wear a helmet but all children MUST wear a helmet or they will be unable to take part. Make sure you wear suitable clothing, you will need lights and bring a spare inner tube just in case of punctures.
