Description 

A joint ride from Inspiring Healthy Lifestyles and HSBC British Cycling Guided rides. 

We will be riding out to watch the Tour of Britain as it passes through Haigh Hall. We start out from Robin Park Arena passing around the DW Stadium which is the home of Wigan Athletic and Wigan Warriors. We join the Leeds Liverpool canal and pass through Wigan Pier on our way to the Wigan Flight of Locks. We will riding up all 21 of them at a very leisurly pace. From top lock we head towards Red Rock and will be leaving the canal at Pendlebury Lane (for those who know the lane we are not riding up it as there is a much easier alternative that will take us to the junction of School Lane and Meadow Pit Lane. Here we will be riding the tour route to our stop at Haigh Hall Kitchen Courtyard.

The majority of the route has decent surfaces but there are a couple of sections that can be quite muddy and we have a short section of rough road that could well have a few deep puddles depending on the weather.

We will be stopping at the Kitchen Courtyard where Tea, Coffee and cake will be provided by Inspiring Healthy Lifestyles and we can relax watching the race on the Large screen waiting for the race to get to us.
