Welcome to Breeze Wigan Spring rides, we are an extremely friendly group and our regular riders are of mixed abilities, so everyone regardless of experience and ability is very welcome to join us. We especially welcome ladies who are taking their first pedals on their bike and want to gain confidence in a friendly supportive group. We dont ride a set speed we would rather ride to a pace where we can have a chat and get to know each other! We also welcome rider on E-bikes.

We will be riding along the Leeds to Liverpool Canal, on the towpath which is a mix of imprinted concrete and gravel paths, There is a very short section of very quiet road neat to the half way stop.
