A fun bike ride from the centre of Derby to Swarkestone, with a cafe break before returning back to Derby. The ride is suitable for all ages and is mostly aimed at novice and improvers, or those who would like to get back into cycling - the ride will be at an enjoyable, relaxed and social pace. As long as you know how to ride then the event is for you. The route is entirely traffic free but there will be a short section of walking on the canal tow path.

Starting from the steps of Derby City Council House, we will follow the river to Alveston Park and then the old canal path to Swarkestone along a flat, 6-mile route. Once we arrive there will be a 40 minute break to give you a chance to have a rest and buy a drink at the Swarkestone Nursery café. We will return as a group to the starting point along the same route.

The ride is suitable for all ages and is mostly aimed at novice and improvers, or those who would like to get back into cycling - the ride will be at an enjoyable, relaxed and social pace. As long as you know how to ride then the event is for you.
