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 40 mins  (1 hours 0 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.

  • Tom Leivers
    Tom Leivers I'm a Go-Ride Coach and Bikeability Instructor so I'm really enthusiastic about getting people, young and not so young, onto bikes and enjoying the health and social benefits cycling can bring whatever your ability. I enjoy riding for pleasure and have ridden most of the lanes and roads in the Fylde and surrounding area over the years- and a few further afield. I do the occasional Sportive and Charity Ride when time allows to do the training and if I can't answer your cycling query I'll find someone who can.
