Our rides are open to all and the SLH team particularly welcome those who want to get back on their bikes after a break or who are new to cycling, as well as families with children. They will be led by experienced cycle leaders who will make sure that no-one is left behind. By request, a couple of the rides this year are longer and more challenging.
June 11th Sunday Macclesfield canal via Chadkirk & Middlewood Way. More challenging.
Our longest ride, using the Trans Pennine Trail, Alan Newton Way and the Middlewood Way we’ll finish up at the small cafe at Bailey’s Trading Post, though nearby are the Boars Head inn and the Anson engine museum. And you could continue on a short & quiet, albeit rough track into Lyme Park. Almost all off-road.
Meet at 10:15: Heaton Norris Park, Love Lane.
Distance: 21 miles with couple of hills (easily walkable). Finish time: around 4:30pm
July 23rd Sunday Halls circular route. More challenging.
A fairly long ride, taking in the various Halls around Stockport. Starting at Brinksway Bridge in Heaton Norris to see Pendlebury, Bredbury, Goyt, Offerton, Bramall, Bruntwood & Abney Halls. With a cafe stop at one of them.
Meet at 10:15: Pedestrianised Brinksway Bridge over the Mersey, near Pyramid, Heaton Norris.
Distance: 17 miles, some roads. Finish time: around 4:30pm
Numbers are limited, so please book places. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org saying how many adults and children will be coming and on which rides.
Participants should bring a roadworthy bike and under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.
Looking forward to seeing you!

And don’t forget that on the Last Friday of each month, there are morning bike rides into Manchester leaving Heaton Chapel train station at 8:05 am. These Bike Friday rides are organised by FoE rather than SLH.
