Hirst Lock to East Riddlesden Hall Christmas Fair Towpath Ride

Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
2 hours 30 mins  (1 hours 30 mins cycling)
Breeze Bike Rides
Guided Rides Great routes and support from trained leaders


Breeze Bike Rides in Bradford

Yet another nice gentle ride along the canal from Hirst Woods to East Riddlesden Hall and their Christmas Fair and pick up any last minute presents.

Held in the barn, the fair will also include refreshments, free craft activities and music. Free entry to event - please note house and gardens closed. Check out http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/east-riddlesden-hall for further details.

We will be stopping for refreshments at the Hall, but it's also a good idea to bring some water and a snack.

The more adventurous can take the '5 Rise Lock Hill' challenge or you can join me in pushing. Approx a 10 mile round trip.

Newcomers to Breeze rides are very welcome.  Dress appropriately for the weather: several thin layers are best and a rain jacket could come in handy. Wearing a helmet is advisable but not essential

The towpath can get very muddy after rain, so please bear this in mind when choosing what to wear for the ride ;-)  

I'll look forward to seeing you there!

My number on the day is 07940 975 971

Meet the Champions

  • Judy Robinson
    Judy Robinson They tell me that I'm the oldest Breeze champion on their books but that doesn't worry me, as riding my bike again after so many years has certainly given me a new lease of life. Just happy to be here, I'm no longer competitive. I don't go fast, far or steep, but I do love my bike and want to pass on my enthusiasm to others so they also may enjoy the joy and freedom that riding a bike can give, share the fun that I'm having and get fitter in the process. If I can do it, I'm sure you can.
