Not to be confused with the big ride this Sunday, we have a brand new TASTER RIDE!
Kindly led by Ariane and Hayley, this is a smaller, slower paced taster ride to introduce you to the kind of terrain we normally cycle over on our standard and big rides.
So, if you’ve ever thought about coming down but worried that a standard ride might be a little too much distance or climbing, or maybe you’ve worried about your speed, then why not come down and give this great route a try with Hayley and Ariane.
They’ll be setting off at 8am, the same as the big ride, from the St Mary’s Flower Park gates in Prestwich, so we can all meet and introduce ourselves. Read more
