A gentle ride of just under 9 miles , the majority on tarmac and gravel cycleways . This ride is suitable for first timers and Ladies returning to cycling .
We will be cycling from Mouldon Hill along the RiverRay cycle way past Shaw Forest . Briefly we will use the Western Flyer link path and make our way onto the Shaw Ridge via a small section of road . The Ridge takes us to Lydiard Park with its beautiful house and parkland . Here we will stop at the Coach House cafe for a rest and refreshments . This is the half way point . From there a lakeside path takes us out of the park where we will ride on to Peatmoor Lagoon , where we may be able to spot a couple of Terrapins in the lake ! Finally we will head back to the Mouldon Hill.
Please bring money for the cafe stop but feel free to bring additional snacks and water for the ride . Helmets recommended and suitable clothing if it is cold or wet.
