Breeze Cyclofemme East Manchester – Towpaths and Trails

Sunday 11th May 2014 at 2.00pm This is what time the ride will set off. It’s best to get to the starting point at least 15 minutes beforehand to avoid missing the start.

Starting Point & Postcode
The National Cycling Centre, Stuart Street, Manchester. Meet in front of Evans. The nearest train station is Ashburys, less than a mile away.  M11 4DQ
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 45 mins  (1 hours 15 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.

Breeze Bike Rides in Manchester

May 11th is the Cyclofemme Global Women’s Cycling Day. Join us for a relaxed ride of around 10 miles along canal towpaths, off-road cycle paths and quiet roads in East Manchester. Starting from the National Cycling Centre, we head out through Phillips Park and Clayton Vale, passing the mountain bike trails. After a short section of road, we join the towpath of the Rochdale Canal, taking us right to the City Centre. We then join the Ashton Canal towpath back to the starting point. The route is not suitable for road bikes due to some unsurfaced sections that may be muddy. All other types of bike should be fine. Toilets are available at the start/finish point and about halfway along the route. You are welcome to join us in the Velopark Café after the ride for some refreshment. Newcomers to Breeze rides are very welcome. We’ll always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind. It's a good idea to bring some water and you may also want to bring a snack. Dress appropriately for the weather: in cool weather it's good to wear lots of thin layers, so you can add/remove them as needed; a rain jacket is a good idea too! 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. Please note all children under the age of 16 MUST wear a helmet. If you have any questions please email us at or post us a message on Facebook Look forward to seeing you there!
