Breeze Bike Rides in Wigan

Why not join in on this traffic free canal side ride starting from Wigan Pier's bottom lock taking you along the delights of Leeds Liverpool Canal until you reach Dover Lock.  The total ride is approximately 8 miles and is suitable for all types of bikes as the paths are imprinted concrete or recently laid compacted gravel.  However, this ride is not suitable for any bikes with stabilisers or trailers. 

At mid point there is a pub where we should be able to get a drink or a snack should you wish to so bring along some money if you want to purchase a drink etc.

Most of the canal path is flat with a couple of climbs and lock gates to navigate along the way so suitable for women and children who are able to cycle along the canal. 

It's advised to wear a helmet but all children MUST wear a helmet or they will be unable to take part.  Make sure you wear suitable clothing as I cannot guarantee the sunshine all the time and bring a spare inner tube just in case of punctures.

  • Sandra Green 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.
