Rock around the block – Thursday 22nd August 2019

August 22, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

This is a Breeze ride for ladies.

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’s Forest cafe, this 13 mile ride will explore the paths of West and South Swindon.

We will make our way out onto the local cycle ways to reach the Swindon Old Railway line , a popular cycle path with lovely views of the Ridgeway . From there we will go up into Old Town and take a tarmac cycle path that leads towards The Croft Trail , Swindons very own mini trail centre for mountain bikers . We will stop along side the woodland to see the ‘Wishing Hounds ‘ sculpture before heading out to the Wichelstowe canal and the lagoons , where we may see a heron of the family of resident swans . We head out onto a road section that is a bus route and very quiet , to pick up the cycleway to our cafe stop . Here we may see the little canal boat ‘The Dragonfly’ , that provides short boat trips along the renovated sections of the canal as we have refreshments . We head back towards Lydiard Park via the local Route 45 cycle way and up a couple of short hills , but no one will be left behind if you prefer to walk them . A small circuit of the Lydiard Park lake takes us back home .

Please book onto this ride from
