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.
3 hours 40 mins  (2 hours 0 mins cycling)
Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.

You don’t have to be the next Bradley Wiggins, but you’ll need to know your way around a bike and be fairly fit to take part in our Challenging rides. If you’re comfortable riding with other people and fancy a fresh challenge, these rides are perfect for you. They start at around twenty miles long, and are paced at between 11 and 12 miles an hour.

Come and join us for this Christmas jaunt out to the annual Quorn Arts & Craft Fair. Starting out from the Bike Park we will head out through Abbey Park before connecting up with the NCN6 and heading out to Quorn past Leicester Abbey and the National Space Centre.

When we reach Quorn we will have the opportunity to mooch around the 4 venues around the village where the fair is being held.  You will be able to browse over 50 stalls to help you find the elusive Christmas present you’ve been looking for!

On our way back we will return using NCN 6 before joining up with NCN 48 for a spin through Watermead Country Park and then along the River Soar before arriving at the Bike Park.

Please note.  We have graded this ride as a Steady (8+) as it is designed as an outing rather than just a ride, although the distance of 22 miles would normally classify it as a Challenging ride.

Meet the Ride Leaders

  • David Kirkland David Kirkland I have cycled since I was a child mainly as a means of getting around rather than competition cycling. I then moved on to driving but returned to cycling for leisure, firstly mountain biking then roads in order to cycle longer distances.

    I have cycled some longer routes such as London to Paris, C2C, NCN6 and the Taff Trail. I have also cycled on holidays in the Alps, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy and in France.

    I will be leading rides in the Midlands this summer and look forward to meeting you on some of the Sky Rides.
  • Chris Chambers Chris Chambers
  • Linda Goddard Linda Goddard Hello,
    I am passionate about encouraging people to get on their bikes. I see Breeze rides and Local Skyrides as a way to do this and to provide fun at the same time. I particularly want to encourage more women to get in the saddle!
    Cycling is not only a way to get fit, but is also good for the environment. Think of the petrol saved!
    It is also a social activity, where you can make new friends and be encouraged along by other riders.
    My aim is to support both new and returning cyclists to gain the confidence to cycle more often.
    I look forward to meeting you on the rides.
    Linda
