If you're fairly confident on your bike on dirt and gravel surfaces and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, our Off-Road Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills along the way, there is barely a metre of tarmac in sight on these rides so come and enjoy the scrunch of gravel and the squelch of mud under your tyres with us! Rides are between 6 and 15 miles long, at a moderate pace of between 7 and 10 miles an hour.

Grab your bike and enjoy a gentle ride from the new iconic cycling facility 'Cyclopark' to Jeskyns Country Park.

    Philip Woolford I have been a Skyride Leader since the first one around Battersea Park 8 years ago. When I started commuting to work by bike I became interested in the world of competitive cycling, even volunteering as a marshall for the Tour de France. I became a Sky Ride Route Planner five years ago – ‘I like to add something different to my rides, a little shortcut or a piece of local history, so that all my participants have a thoroughly good time.’
