Guisborough Rambler

Saturday 5th January 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
Cafe at Guisborough Forest Visitors Centre Pinchinthorpe TS14 8HD
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 50 mins  (1 hours 10 mins cycling)
Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.
Mountain Bike, Hybrid (off road tyres) 

Sky Ride Local in Middlesbrough

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.

Join us on this lovely family ride through the picturesque Guisborough Forest, taking in some amazing views while riding on the fire roads within the Forest, marveling at the tranquility of it all.  At 6 miles this ride is perfect for families and friends who would like an introduction into off-road riding.

Meet the Ride Leaders

  • Christine Lewis Christine Lewis I'm a woman in my forties with a love of cycling both on and off road. I have got such a lot out of cycling that I wanted to encourage others to do the same and have been a Sky Ride Leader since 2011. Whatever your level there is a ride for you so hope to see you soon.
  • Chris Orr Chris Orr Hello,

    I'm one of the latest additions to the Sky ride leader group for the area so have a lot of catching up to do!
    That said, I am not new to cycling and have been interested in cycling all my life. I work as Cycling Officer for Middlesbrough Council, so my love of bikes has spilled over into my day job. Love mountain biking, but also commute to work via bike, so innevitably end up riding nearly every day in some way or shape.
    Hope to see you all on a ride at some time,
