Ahoy! Alex Park! (Breeze Ride)

Starting out with a couple of lock side ‘ups’, this is a lovely heritage trail kind of route – Daisy Nook, Park Bridge, Alex Park……The first half of the route will contain mud – seems to be muddy in places on this route even in the height of summer – but we’ll soon be back onto terra firma where I will then throw at you a choice of compacted sand or cobbles to ride on!

The stunning Park Bridge Iron Works is the backdrop for the little ‘Alp’ that we need to get up (there’s plenty of pretty things to distract you from the ‘up’), and the cute Dingle Terrace will be sure to take your breath away once you finally have it back! An old railyway line then takes us to our destination of Alex Park where a cycle through it brings us to the old boathouse which is now a café. Bear in mind that I don’t leave anyone behind and am not afraid to get off and walk on any ‘ups’ that get me!

Surface: compacted dirt/sand, cobbles (canal (2 or 3 sections)), mud, tarmac

Café stop: The Boathouse café at Alexandra Park

As always, please ensure that you have a helmet (I will not allow riders to participate without one), a lock, puncture repair kit and weather appropriate clothing, it is January after all. Also please bring cash for the (not sure if they have a card machine).

We never leave anyone behind
