Join Paul for this easy any bike any rider trip around Manchester and Salford.

The ride is perfect if you are fairly new to cycling or haven't ridden for a while. If you're an experienced cyclist in the mood for something a little more gentle, this is the ride for you too.

The route broadly follows the Manchester and Salford Relief Route (also known as the inner ring road). Using a mixture of cycle paths and quieter roads, this is a great opportunity to see the sights of Manchester and Salford from a different perspective.

Not got a bike, no problem. Hire bikes are available from multiple locations around the city, including right next to our start point. Make sure to download the cycle hire app beforehand, and allow enough time in case you need to go to a different nearby location to find an available bike. The ride is less than 10 miles and will take 60 to 90 minutes to complete at a gentle pace. Based on this timing, hiring a bike should cost no more than £5.00 (or £10.00 for an e-bike). If hiring a bike, don't forget you will still need to bring a helmet as Outdoorlads requires you to wear one. 

Pace and Terrain

This will be a leisurely cycle suitable for all levels of fitness. Due to the mixed nature of the route's surfaces, if you have a road bikes with narrow tyres there are some spots where caution will be needed. We'll aim to cycle non-stop all the way round at a gentle pace of 8 to 10 mph, but we'll stick to the pace of the slowest rider so no one will get left behind.

If needed, there are several points along the route where we can stop for a short rest. At the end, there's the option of grabbing a quick drink or a bite to eat at one of the many other bars/restaurants around All Saints.

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.
