Our rides are designed to be accessible for most people and specific requirements will be specified on a ride-by-ride basis.
The average ride won't exceed 14 miles total length, will usually start and finish in Alexandra Park, Whalley Range, and aim to follow traffic free routes or quiet roads where possible.
We match the speed of the slowest rider and will usually incorporate at least one cafe stop or picnic into the ride.
Most rides are child friendly.
