Meet up on the canal near the Bottom Lock.  Sat nav will take you to Wood's street which is the approach road to Trencherfield Mill and the canal is alongside of the mill car park.  Click on "meet the leaders" to see what we look like.

Nice leisurely ride from Leeds Liverpool Canal Bottom Lock up to the Top Lock. 

Approximately 5 miles in total along a canal towpath suitable for all types of bikes.  Steady climb all the way passing through series of lock gates along the way before stopping at Kirkless Hall Inn to have a rest and a refuel.  Return part of the ride is all downhill finishing at the Bottom Lock.

Ladies and Children are welcome but children MUST wear a helmet to take part.  All levels of fitness and ability are welcome we ride to the slowest pace.  This is a social ride with fun a major part of the ride.

if you have a spare inner tube please bring along as this is easier than trying to repair a puncture (especially if it is raining) but don't let this stop you taking part. 

Please bring a drink with you and any snacks you may require along the way.

Please log on and register on the ride to secure a place!

    Sandra Green Hi I am Sandra Green, I have been riding for a few years on a mountain bike but have always found myself tagging along with guy groups. I have recently branched out in to road riding having completed my first sportive late in 2012. This is my second year as a Sky Ride Leader and I really enjoy meeting new people, trying different routes and getting out with like minded people on a bike. I have also been running Ladies Only Breeze rides in Wigan for the passed three years and always keen to get more ladies out on a bike, enjoying the social aspect as well as getting fit and meeting new friends.
