Challenging You don’t have to be the next Bradley Wiggins, but you’ll need to be fairly fit to take part in Challenging ride. As well as covering a good distance, there may well be a few hills along the way! If you fancy a fresh challenge, these rides are perfect for you.
- Starting Point & Postcode
- The Bike Park Town Hall Square LE1 9BG
- 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.
Helmets must be worn by all under 18's regardless of ride level.
