Bike Park to Beaumont Leys

Sunday 9th December at 10.00am 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 Bike Park Town Hall Square LE1 9BG
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 50 mins  (1 hours 10 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

  • Mike Ball Mike Ball Have been cycling for many years both as an all weathers commuter and a member of the Leicester Spokes cycling (http://www.leicesterspokes.org.uk) group. I particularly enjoy cycle touring in Scotland and Europe, and longer rides such as our annual overnight ride from London to Leicester. My ambitions are to cycle across the USA and China, perhaps all the way around the world? I try to use my bike for most trips and want to encourage people to look on bike travel as everyday transport, not just something for the weekend. I look forward to meeting you on a ride.
  • Mike Vybiral Mike Vybiral Although only my second year as a Skyride leader, I've been organising and leading bike rides in S.E. Leicestershire for a number of years.

    For example, in 2011:
    'Summer Cycling', fortnightly 5, 15 & 25k rides on Wednesday evenings from the Fox & Goose, Illston-on-the-Hill;
    'Macmillan Harborough 100', a 100k charity ride from the Langton Brewery, Thorpe Langton, (which raised £7,500);
    'Welland Wonders', a choice of 50, 100 & 160k rides from Husbands Bosworth, which raised £500 for a range of charities.

    I'm also a member of the Welland Valley Cycle Club, which organises a whole range of bike-related activities for all ages, in and around the Harborough area.
