Breeze Bike Rides in Wigan

"Santa Claus is coming to town" why not join in with the Christmas themed ride, fancy dress is optional the Christmasy the better.

Meet up on the canal near the Bottom Lock. Sat nav will take you to Wood's street which is the approach road to Trencherfield Mill and the canal is alongside of the mill car park.

Nice leisurely ride from Leeds Liverpool Canal Bottom Lock up to Wigan Lane Orchid Room Cafe then returning to the start point.

Approximately 8 miles in total along a canal towpath suitable for all types of bikes and a purpose built tarmac cycle path. Steady climb along the Leeds Liverpool Canal before stopping at Orchid Room cafe, Wigan Lane to have a rest and a refuel. Return part of the ride is all downhill finishing at the Bottom Lock.

Ladies and Children are welcome but children MUST wear a helmet to take part. All levels of fitness and ability are welcome we ride to the slowest pace. This is a social ride with fun a major part of the ride.

If you have a spare inner tube bring it along as this is much easier to change than to try and mend a puncture on the trail, but don't let this put you off if you haven't got one. It would also be useful to have lights as although this is traffic free it is getting darker much earlier especially with the dull weather we are having at present.

Meet the Champions

  • Sandra Green
    Sandra Green Hi I am Sandra Green, I have been riding for a few years on a mountain bike but have always found myself tagging along with guy groups. I have also branched out in to road riding having completed my first sportive late in 2012 and like to combine the two. This is my third year as a Sky Ride Leader and I really enjoy meeting new people, trying different routes and getting out with like minded people on a bike. I have also been running Ladies Only Breeze rides in Wigan for almost four years having led over 200 rides and I am always keen to get more ladies out on a bike, enjoying the social aspect as well as getting fit and meeting new friends. If you would like more information on our ladies (and children) rides with Breeze Wigan email me: Follow on twitter and Instagram : @breezewigan or Facebook:

    Louise Head Just over a year ago I was looking to join a cycling group. I saw the TV advertisement for sky rides - where will your bike take you? I joined in and throughly enjoyed the rides. I was introduced to Breeze rides by a skyride leader - since then I've never looked back, fun, friendship and fitness. The rides have been so much fun. I've met so many lovely people and my fitness has definitely improved! With a bit of gentle persuasion from Breeze Champion Sandra, I have trained as a Champion and I'm looking forward to meeting you and riding alongside. That's where my bike took me. Hope your bike takes you to one of our Breeze rides.
