Breeze Bike Rides in Wigan

Join us for this traffic free canal side ride starting from Wigan Pier's bottom lock taking you the delights of Leeds Liverpool Canal until you reach Dover Lock.  The total ride is approximately 8 miles and is suitable for all types of bikes as the paths are imprinted concrete or recently laid compacted gravel.  However, this ride is not suitable for any bikes with stabilisers or trailers. 

As is the tradition of Breeze Wigan this will be the Halloween ride where dressing up as witches, ghouls, goblins, skeletons and all things scary.

Why not come along to this leisurely paced cycle along traffic free cycle paths and canal towpaths is approximately  8 miles in total.  This bike ride goes along cycle paths/canal towpaths/quiet roads and whilst it is suitable for hybrids and mountain bikes there are some sections of the canal which may have experienced rain so we might encounter few bumps and puddles along the way.

Most of the canal path is flat with a couple of climbs and lock gates to navigate along the way so suitable for women and children who are able to cycle along the canal. We will have a refreshment stop at Dover Lock. Please bring some money if you would like to purchase food or drinks.

It's advised to wear a helmet but all children MUST wear a helmet or they will be unable to take part.  Make sure you wear suitable clothing, have a set of lights that are working and bring a spare inner tube just in case of punctures.

Please log on and register on the ride to secure a place

Meet the Champions

    Louise Head Just over a year ago I was looking to join a cycling group. I saw the TV advertisement for sky rides - where will your bike take you? I joined in and throughly enjoyed the rides. I was introduced to Breeze rides by a skyride leader - since then I've never looked back, fun, friendship and fitness. The rides have been so much fun. I've met so many lovely people and my fitness has definitely improved! With a bit of gentle persuasion from Breeze Champion Sandra, I have trained as a Champion and I'm looking forward to meeting you and riding alongside. That's where my bike took me. Hope your bike takes you to one of our Breeze rides.

    Sandra Green Hi I am Sandra Green, I have been riding for a few years on a mountain bike but have always found myself tagging along with guy groups. I have recently branched out in to road riding having completed my first sportive late in 2012. This is my second year as a Sky Ride Leader and I really enjoy meeting new people, trying different routes and getting out with like minded people on a bike. I have also been running Ladies Only Breeze rides in Wigan for the passed three years and always keen to get more ladies out on a bike, enjoying the social aspect as well as getting fit and meeting new friends.
