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.

About the Lytham Loop

Lytham Loop rides are for those of you who want a slightly longer ride than our Coaster’s ride offers, but shorter and slower than our Long Lytham Loop. If you feel confident on road sections, and want to take a steady ride along flat, largely traffic-free routes with a few traffic calmed country lanes, the Lytham Loops is set at a relaxed adult pace of 12mph.

You will be guided, from Lytham Windmill through Lytham to access our back lanes from Green Drive – a beautiful kilometre of cool green avenue. From there, we’ll connect with a short section of Route 62’s cycle lane, before heading up towards The Bryning, stopping at The Burley Arms for Coffee & Pudding (see pudding menu below).

On our return, we link across through the back lanes to Moss Side, and up though Wrea Green before we find the local’s hidden back lanes to Lytham. We’ll have a short ‘warm down’ in the park just before the end of the ride, aiming to be back at the windmill around 9pm.

 We maintain a mutual cycling pace, which is not fast. We try to gauge what is comfortable in order for new riders to gradually progress in speed and ability and join our more challenging Longer Loops. Experienced riders would definitely enjoy the conversational pace of these rides as they can be very relaxing.

We meet at Lytham Windmill, starting with a few stretch techniques and bike-checks at 6pm.

We begin the ride at 6.30 prompt. If you are an experienced rider, please join us at 6 to share any personal hints and tips with others during bike-checks.

Please also be sure to bring an extra windproof or waterproof layer and suncream (even in the winter)

 NOTE: We advocate helmet wearing but it is your choice whether you wear a helmet or not. These are strictly Women Only rides with the lowest female age bracket is set at 16 years.

You’ll also need some money…

Meet the Champions

  • Di Hickman Di Hickman Like most of us, I graduated through from trike to stabiliser-bike, finally emerging as a cyclist when my father let go of my saddle with one final push.

    My bikes were hand-me-downs, and soon they took me far beyond the country lanes to the villages and towns I’d previously seen only from car windows.

    What I like most about getting on my bike is the tangible nostalgia of childhood; the feeling of freedom, breathing, the wind my hair, and independence from everything. My bike isn’t just free, reliable transport, it’s a bond. On lone days out,my bike takes me along the 30km stretch of shoreline cycle-path that starts in Lytham and ends in Fleetwood – I still have a hotdog on the way! I catch the ferry over to Knott End and continue along the desolate wash of Cockerham.

    That’s me. I'm 48, a Shropshire Lass, and I’d like to share my rides with anyone who wants to discover the inner secrets of Lancashire’s delights by bike. If you’re thinking you can’t ride, get in touch and tell me why – I think I can change your mind.

    I’m particularly interested in anyone who feels they encounter a barrier that prevents them from cycling. Please get in touch if you:

    • haven’t touched a bike since you were young
    • don’t own a bike
    • don’t think you can ride
    • think weight might get in the way
    • are concerned about your ability to ride
    • Are worried about socialising
    • are deaf
    • don’t know how you’d start to approaching cycling but want to

    If you have any questions please contact us at lytham.breeze@facebook.com

    If you are running late on the date please call Di on 07784272787

    Look forward to seeing you there!
