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 0 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.

Breeze Bike Rides in Wigan

This ride starts at the car park at Pennington Hall from where we will pick up the canal towpath towards Wigan and then take a cycle trail to Three Sisters Recreation Area and Viridor Wood. The paths are fairly flat and the route is virtually traffic free and suitable for most bikes apart from those with stabilisers or trailers On the return journey we will deviate slightly from the outward route onto Edge Green Lane and although we may encounter some traffic this is a fairly quiet road up to the Harrow Inn where we can buy something to eat or drink, so please bring some money along. Wearing a helmet is advisable If you have a spare inner tube please bring this along, although don't worry if you haven't got one. It would also be advisable to bring a drink and a waterproof jacket in case of adverse weather We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind If you have any questions please contact me (Margaret) at give me a call on 07763968415. Look forward to seeing you there.

Meet the Champions

  • Margaret Green
    Margaret Green Hi I'm Margaret and I've been cycling on and off for the last 10 years or so but since retiring five years ago am now cycling 2/3 times each week!! I enjoy cycling so much and meeting new friends - in fact it's the only exercise that doesn't feel like a punishment to me - and I would love to think I'd encouraged others to enjoy it too.
  • Joy Lummis
