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.

This is a picturesque ride that starts at Furzton Lake & goes to Jennie Wren's Tea Rooms on the Market Square in Winslow, then returns by the same route.

The route is just over 9 miles each way, 18.5 miles in total. Predominantly off road with a few short country road sections to join up the off road.

Starts on quiet Redways that run beside the lake on paved & gravel paths crossing a few wooden bridges. Through Bletchley we leave the Redways to join a secluded farm track road, a little muddy if it's been raining! Great views over the countryside, crossing a few roads to emerge in Winslow town centre. Some gentle climbs on the way out on tarmac gravel & mud paths to a well earned rest with cake of course! Then a quicker peddle back, mainly downhill & flat to return to Furzton Lake.

Most bikes are suitable, except road bikes with skinny tyres. During Autumn/Winter this route can be quite muddy in places, so extremely slick tyres are not a good idea.  You don't have to be an experienced rider to join us, but be able to keep a leisurely continuous pace & we can always stop if needed to take in the views. There are a few farm gates where we'll need to stop anyway.

A lovely ride with great views & a few nice challenges over a good distance to deserve a cake stop! Approximately 1 hour 15 on the way out, 1 hour on the return, with time for stopping in-between.

Facilities available at Premier Inn on Furzton Lake & at Jennie Wren's Tea Rooms. For more rides in Milton Keynes go to Cycle your Heart out!

Please call Sue on 07872 628430 if you get lost or need to cancel on the morning.

Look forward t seeing you there!

Meet the Champions

  • Sue Skeggs
    Sue Skeggs I'm a keen cyclist and will give most rides/events a go, however bad at them I am! I regularly coach the Youth Development Team at Team Milton Keynes. I became involved with Breeze as I would love to see more ladies out on their bikes, wherever and however they would like to; so I'm keen to support this by leading some informal rides that will allow us ladies to meet up. I measure my rides in how many cakes I think I deserve at the end of it!
