Join us for a chilled, sociable women's ride with a coffee stop half way!

We are celebrating the waterways of Manchester and exploring them by bike!

Wheeling women of Manchester, join Belinda and Julia for a chilled and sociable cycle. A lot of greenery and water will feature on this ride with 97% of it being off road. We will stop for coffee + cake around ½ way but please feel free to bring a flask / picnic to fuel your ride if you'd prefer.

Friendly Notice!

The ride is free to you but comes with cost and planning on our part so if for any reason your circumstances change and you can no longer join us, please let us know with as much warning as possible and we can give your space to someone else. The size of the group is extremely limited: if the ride is oversubscribed then priority will be given to those who have signed up. Thank you!

How we ride:

Our goal is to be a friendly and inclusive cycle club. To achieve this aim we expect all riders to:

- Look out for each other

- Be friendly and supportive to all riders

- Be self-sufficient (e.g. bring appropriate spares and supplies)

Our rides and events are insured by Cycling UK which is a charity who do great things for community cycling. They ask that all of our ride participants complete a short survey to better understand people's cycling habits and needs. To save time on the day, you can fill in the survey beforehand by clicking on this link. You will only ever need to fill it in once, regardless of how many rides / events you join in on - thank you muchly in advance!
