Breezing to the Allotment

This ride is a leisurely paced cycle along traffic free cycle paths, canal towpaths and quiet roads approximately 8 miles in total. 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. 
There will still be the climbs as we get to the rest stop as well as downhill’s to take us back to the start point. This is a social ride and 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 Hindley near Formby’s.
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.

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.
