Join Paul for this any bike any rider 17 mile cycle around Manchester, Prestwich and Salford.

This ride is perfect if you have done a bit of cycling before and now want to build up or maintain your fitness levels. We will aim to ride at a steady pace of  about 10 mph along a mixture of cycle paths and some fairly busy roads. as always, we'll stick to the pace of the slowest rider so no one will get left behind.

Starting from Manchester City Centre, we will ride out to Prestwich, passing through Newton Heath and Blackley. Along the way there will be several gentle hills to climb at your own pace, with a chance to regroup and recover at the top if needed.

The return leg through Salford is mostly downhill or flat. We'll do a quick circuit of Kersal Wetlands before following the River Irwell back into Manchester. Due to the mixed nature of the route's surfaces, if you have a road bike with narrow tyres there are some spots where caution will be needed.

We'll aim to cycle non-stop all the way round. There is plenty of choice of places to go for a well-earned drink or a bite to eat when we get back to the city centre. 

If you're not a regular cyclist, please do make sure your bike is in good condition - check the tyres are well inflated, chain is oiled, and you've got a spare inner tube, drinks and snacks with you.
