. 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.
Many of our Saturday rides are relatively short and suitable for members who have ridden the Wednesday rides, or even new to the scene.
