This is a Breeze ride for all abilities – children who are competent cyclists or on their parents bikes welcome. Please note due to the bumpy, uneven surface on some parts of this ride it won’t be suitable for trailers or tag-alongs, sorry.
Starting from – Meet outside the Forest Cafe in Lydiard Park (next to the playground). Toilets and parking are available, but please be aware of parking charges (£2 for 2 hours, £4 all day).
Starting at Lydiard Park, this 11 mile ride will explore the parks and lakes of West Swindon.
We will be riding mainly off-road on paved cycle paths and some narrower, rougher cycle tracks with short sections of quiet road. Some of the route takes in some fairly rough and bumpy cycle tracks so isn’t suitable for trailers or tag-alongs.
We will take it at a social pace with stops to enjoy the scenery and take photos on the route. We will stop for a drink and a snack at one of the cafes at Lydiard Park at the end of the ride.
Helmets are compulsory and please make sure your bike is suitable for the route as there will be some rough, bumpy ground and it may be muddy in places. Bring water and snacks for the ride if needed and some money for refreshments at the end.
All riding abilities welcome, including new riders. We’re a friendly group, and will ride at a relaxed pace – hope you can join us!
