Starting Point & Postcode
National Cycle Centre, Stuart Street 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.
2 hours 30 mins  (1 hours 45 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.

Meet the Ride Leaders

  • Amanda Phillipson Amanda Phillipson I can't remember a time when I didn't ride a bike - I have always loved the freedom you have when you cycle. I am a keen road rider, having time trailed for some years on the back of a tandem!
    I love getting people out on their bikes and seeing them enjoy themselves and achieving something, maybe for the first time.

    A very enjoyable ride, very well managed by the leaders and good company with the other riders
  3. Jennie Sullivan Sunday 7th September
    Had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed this ride even though struggled with some of the steep climbs. Well worth doing and would do again, great leaders who were very helpful and didn't mind waiting for people lagging at the back :)
