Pedal to the Parlour

Saturday 22nd December 2012 at 10.00am This is what time the ride will set off. It’s best to get to the starting point at least 15 minutes beforehand to avoid missing the start.

Starting Point & Postcode
Carpark for The Southwell Trail (next to The Final Whistle pub, Station Road, Southwell, Notts, NG25 0ET)  NG25 0ET
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.
1 hours 30 mins  (1 hours 0 mins cycling)

Breeze Bike Rides in Newark and Sherwood

We'll meet at the car park of The Southwell Trail on Station Road, then ride up Normanton Road/Hockerton Road towards the Spread Eagle at Hockerton, then turn to ride up to Newfield Dairy & Ice-cream Parlour at Hockerton Heights. We'll enjoy a hot chocolate or a home-made ice-cream at this amazing cafe, as we watch the pedigree herd of Holstein cows graze in the fields next to the Parlour. We'll then ride the route in reverse back to our starting point.

This is a relatively short ride (3.5 miles each way) but there is a hill near the start, so you'll need to be confident to ride uphill with your gears. The benefit is that it's pretty much downhill all the way home!

Although we are riding on quiet country roads, this is nevertheless a road-ride all the way, so you'll need to be stable and confident on your bike as this route is not traffic-free.

We’ll always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind. We really welcome newcomers to our rides. 

It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack if you think your energy levels may need topping up along the way.  Wearing a helmet is advisable, though not essential. Please bring some money if you want to buy refreshments.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Louise Righton Hi, I'm Louise, your Breeze ride leader for Southwell and surrounding Notts villages. I love riding my bike but am too slow to ride with my husband and his mates, so am looking for some ladies to ride with socially at weekends! I hope you'll join me to pedal and chat, stop for coffee or a picnic, and maybe gain some fitness and friends along the way! Looking forward to riding with you.
