Ride Steady Leisurely rides to relax and let yourself go You're happy enough riding a bike but probably feel a bit rusty and would like the chance to turn the pedals with friends and family in a relaxed environment giving you the chance to stop, socialise and see the sights of your local area. You'll ride in parks, on towpaths, smooth trails, minor suburban roads and maybe the occasional rolling hill. It's all designed to give you a rewarding cycling experience of around one and a half hours at a slow to leisurely pace; your pace, your patch, your way. We welcome all ages on Ride Steady however adults bringing children under 5 may do so providing they are secured in a BS standard child seat or trailer.
Barking and Dagenham
- Starting Point & Postcode
- Goresbrook Park The playground at Dagenham Avenue between Vincent Road and Hatfield Road RM9 6LL
- 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.
