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 25 mins cycling)

Breeze Bike Rides in Hyndburn

Another little evening ride to set us up for dinner and/or ease away the post-work aches and pains. This is an ideal bike ride for beginners but more advanced cyclists are more than welcome - think of it as a stretch of the legs and a good chance to meet other friendly people.


We'll start at the car park and make our way along a stretch of the Hyndburn Greenway before picking up the canal and heading in the Burnley direction and seeing how far we can go - keeping an eye on the sunset.


The route is mainly on traffic free cycle paths or alongside the canal. There is one very short stretch along a residential street - you won't notice you're there it's so quiet and is ideal for a social, easy going ride.


You'll need a hybrid or mountain bike as some parts of the towpath can be a bit rugged and please check the weather beforehand - waterproofs and/or warmer clothes are a good idea, especially for our rest/chat stop. Other good items are a spare inner tube, cycling gloves and a helmet (if you don't have a helmet please still come along, if you decide you enjoy cycling you may think about investing in one for the future). As it's getting into Autumn it would be a good idea to have some lights on your bike, we're not expecting it to be dark but it could be dusky.


This is a leisurely, traffic-free route and, as such, it is good for confident children. All under 16s must be with a parent and all under 18s must wear a helmet.

Meet the Champions

  • Carolyn Cornthwaite Carolyn Cornthwaite I love cycling - I do other sports, running, swimming, yoga but nothing beats cycling. I cycle to get to work as well as cycling for pleasure. I enjoy road and traffic cycling and I'm keen to get other people cycling and infect everyone with my enthusiasm for the feel of a cool breeze on your skin as you take in ever-changing views.
