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.

Breeze Bike Rides in Chorley

Perhaps you’ve not ridden a bike for a while and you’re looking for the easiest way to get back in the saddle? Or you fancy a fun way to get your friends? This ride is about building confidence for all abilities and ages in a relaxed, traffic-free, gentle environment.

This route is a perfect way to explore Rivington without climbing the pike. The route stays mostly on bridleways so can get a bit bumpy, don’t be put off if it rains as this is a great ride for putting on the waterproofs and having a splash in some puddles. Starting at Rivington Hall Barn we will head along the hill without having to climb up all the way to the back of Blackrod School. We will then cross over Rivington Lane and head along the reservoir passing Go Ape before heading back to the cafe. 

If you are driving its probably better to park your car at the bottom of the lane leading up to Rivington Hall and walk or cycle up to the start point at the barn - it will then be much easier to stop at the cafe and join us for a coffee and cake at the end of the ride.

The total length of the ride is around 4 miles and the path is suitable for mountain bikes with sturdy tyres. Wearing a helmet is advisable, though not essential. If you have a spare inner tube great please bring one along but not to worry if you don’t. It’s always good to take a few layers to cope with our British weather, a waterproof is always advisable and some cash would be handy if you wish to join us for a nice latte in the cafe at the end of the ride.

    Sara Rushton Hi I'm Sara and I've been cycling on and off since I went to college. I enjoy cycling and much prefer it to going to a gym. I am just a recreational cyclist who goes at a nice steady pace, easier to chat that way!
