Ride to Haigh (Breeze Ride)

Come and join us on this mostly traffic free canal side ride starting from Leigh College Car Park along the Leeds Liverpool Canal and including a section of National Cycling Network’s Route 55 through a section of Haigh Hall to Wigan.

The ride is approximately 22 miles and uses cycle paths, canal towpaths and quiet roads and is suitable for hybrids and mountain bikes although if there has been a lot of rain recently there would be some muddy puddles to add to the fun!!  There are some lock gates to navigate along the way and a few inclines to climb (but we aren’t too proud to push if necessary) before a well deserved stop at the Stables cafe in Haigh hall

There will be plenty of rest stops and its advisable to bring along a drink and a spare inner tube just in case (if you don’t have one don’t let this stop you from taking part).  Also please wear a helmet and make sure you have suitable clothing.

Places are limited so please book online
