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 will be a nice social ride around the cycle paths of West Swindon.
From Lydiard Park we will follow the ‘West Swindon Round’ towards Shaw Forest Park taking a detour to Moulden Hill. From there we will join up with the West Swindon Round again and follow it through Westlea and Toothill through to Blagrove. From there we will head back to Lydiard Park where we will stop at the café for refreshments. We can always do a lap of the park when we get back if people have got any energy left!
The majority of this ride will be on traffic-free tarmac cycle paths but there will be some uneven gravel and muddy sections and some quiet sections of road along the way so please make sure your bike is suitable for the terrain.
This route is mainly flat with a few short hills but we will take it at a social pace and no-one will get left behind.
