- 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.
- 2 hours 30 mins (1 hours 30 mins cycling)
Breeze Bike Rides in Bradford
This is a nice gentle ride along the canal from Hirst Woods to Riddlesden..
The ride out will be traffic free, but dependant on who comes along, we may ride back to Bingley along the cycle path before returning to the canal. We’ll always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind. We really welcome newcomers to our rides.
We will be stopping for refreshments at 5 Rise Locks on the return leg.
The more adventurous can take the '5 Rise Lock Hill' challenge or you can join me in pushing. Approx 11 miles round trip, but can be easily shortened (or even lengthened) if required.
It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack. Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part. If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then.
Look forward to seeing you there!
