Come and join us on a bike ride along the Cycles paths, canal towpaths and quiet roads. This bike ride goes along cycle paths/canal towpaths/quiet roads and whilst it is suitable for hybrids and mountain bikes there are some sections of the canal which if have experienced rain can have a few bumps and puddles along the way.

The scenic route will will still have a cafe stop at a local cafe before finishing the ride home. There will be some hill climbs along the way but you will be rewarded with some fab downhill. as always we will have plenty of rest stops and ALWAYS cycle to the slowest rider so don’t be put off from joining in. Start and finish is near The Old Hockery Brook Pub which is now Retro, on Wigan Road. Helmets are advised to be worn during the ride and also wear suitable clothing taking account of the weather.

It’s advisable to bring along an inner tube just in case of punctures as it isn’t always easy to fix on the trail with a puncture repair kit. Children are welcome on this ride but all children must be accompanied by an adult taking part and MUST wear a helmet or will be unable to take part in the ride.

Children must be able to ride their bike confidently on cycle paths, along the canal towpath and quiet roads including being able to tackle the hill climbs. There will be an opportunity to buy a drink and snack at the cafe so please bring some money along if you wish to use the cafe.

Places are limited so please book online
