Monday / Wednesday Rides

 

.  The rides will meet up at 1900 from various points within Stockport.  The rides will mainly be off-road on easy paths.  Two rides will be offered each week – an easy ride for true beginners over about 6-8 miles and a longer one for the more experienced at about 10-12  miles.  The Monday rides do not include a 6 mile option. You may choose to go on either but we recommend the shorter one to start with.
