Sky Ride Local in Blackburn with Darwen

If you’re fairly confident on your bike and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, our Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills along the way, rides take place on mainly quiet roads with plenty of sights along the way. Rides are between 6 and 20 miles long, at a moderate pace of between 7 and 10 miles an hour.

This is a special ride taking place to coincide with the Witton Country Fair, run in conjunction with Myerscough College Open Day.  Ride your bike and then enjoy a great day at the Country Fair, with lots to see for all the family!

Join us on this five and a bit mile circular route from Witton Park, through the surrounding countryside and town along quiet lanes, tracks, suburban roads and canal banks. The route is mainly surfaced roads and paths, taking in the tow path and a track. A great way to take your riding a bit further and see more of the great cycling Blackburn has to offer. There is also range of facilities at the park at the end of our ride.
