- 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 Wigan
We’ll meet canal side, starting near Wigan Pier at the Trencherfield Mill site at the bottom lock. The ride is approximately 22 miles along the flat towpath of the Leeds Liverpool Canal heading to Burscough Wharf, where we will stop have lunch and take a well earned rest before the return journey commences. The path is partly paved but then does become the traditional canal side path so mountain bikes are best suited to this terrain, especially if we have had rain previously. Hybrids have been used on this ride but please be aware of the changing terrain in the wet.
Bring plenty of snacks and a drink as this is a long ride and advisable to dress for the British weather with plenty of spare clothing just in case. Helmets are advisable and it is a good idea to bring a spare inner tube along but don't worry if you haven't got one.
Children are welcome on this ride as long as they can do the distance and MUST wear a helmet or will not be allowed to take part.
If the weather is particularly bad and the path has become water logged the ride will be reduced to 17 miles stopping at Parbold.
This ride is a popular one so please log on the website to secure you place as we are limited to 8 riders per leader.
We always ride to the slowest of the group as this is a social, friendly bike ride, where you can get fit, have fun and make lots of friends.
Bike hire is available at £10 from Winstanley Cycles but you must organise this prior to the ride. Please email me to arrange.
