Easy Riders

IMG_3348.JPG

The Easy Riders programme allows cyclists of all ages and skill levels to enjoy the city’s parks from the saddle. All rides are taken at a pace to suit the slowest, with plenty of stops en route.
Children are welcome, but under 16s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The rides use a mixture of surfaces so robust tyres are advisable. Wherever possible the rides use redways, shared paths and quiet roads.

Please ensure that your bicycle is in good working order. Carry a puncture repair kit or spare inner tube, a lock, money, food and a drink. A cycle helmet and waterproofs are advisable. Lights may be necessary on evening rides.

Easy Riders events are not a race or trial of speed and participants are expected to follow the rules of the road and show consideration to other road/path users. Although the ride is led, the route is not waymarked or marshalled and riders are responsible for their own safety and conduct.

See the events section of this website for the Easy Riders programme.
