Whizzing to Westy – Ladies Only (Ride Social)

Ride leader: Lesley Doxsey. We are meeting at the back of the Tesco Car Park (nr click and collect). Please arrive 10-15 mins beforehand for a quick bike check and ride briefing. If you have not completed a ride participant form previously for one of the HRS rides, please request one via email horwichridesocial@gmail.com, Facebook messenger or through the let’s ride site.

Heading off on this easy-going ride, we will cycle along shared cycle paths, the Middlebrook Trail and quiet roads through to our cafe stop. There is one short steady incline in Lostock to contend with, but don’t let that put you off, you can always dismount and push. Average speed – 6-7 mph Elevation – 142 ft. This ride is aimed at those ladies getting back into cycling who wish to increase their confidence in a small group and ladies progressing from s2s.

We have a lovely cafe stop for you at Amore.

Please ensure your bike is in good working condition. Check your gears and brakes and if they are a little bit stiff/rusty and you are not sure how to remedy, take it to your local bike shop. They will be happy to take a look. Although helmets are only recommended by law and not deemed to be essential, anyone not wearing a helmet will not be able to join the ride unfortunately. We do have bikes and helmets to hire if required. Please email Horwichridesocial@gmail.com for further details.

First-timers welcome!

Places are limited so please book online
