Tuesday 29th November

Jim T will be leading:

Tuesday’s ride is a relatively simple ride of almost 19 miles, with a total ascent of 679 ft.  It is largely on road so a road bike or hybrid would be the most suitable type of bike for this ride.  The route is one we have done on many previous occasions and is likely to be familiar with many of you. 

We leave Trencherfield Mill along the Wallgate cycle track before turning into Firth Street for the run past the DW Stadium to Challenge Way.  This then leads us up to Orrell Post, along Moor Road, through Longshaw and into Billinge.  We then use Newton Road to take us down through Garswood, Bryn and along Bryn Road to join Bolton Road (A58). We stay with Bolton Road through Bamfurlong and Platt Bridge before turning into Amberswood Local Nature Reserve and use the Whelley Loop Line to get us to the canal at New Springs for the easy downhill run back to Trencherfield Mill.  

Everyone is welcome to join us at the Brick Café as usual for a drink and snack after the ride.

Starting at 09:30am from Trencherfield Mill, Heritage Way, Woods Street, Wigan WN3 4AT

Non members are very welcome to come along for a ride or two before joining, all we ask is that you fill out one of our membership forms before doing so and bring it along with you as well as your own bike & helmet to use on the ride.

    I am aged 71 and have suffered health issues. Having not ridden a bike x 60years I purchased a hybrid E bike to help me get some independence back (NB: I lost my driving licence due to health issues).
    With an E bike …..would I be allowed to join?
