Starting point


Ride Leaders - Lesley Doxsey & Martin Doxsey.
Average ride speed 8-10 mph . Elevation 650 ft. Starting from Halfords, Manchester Road we head off on this relatively flat ride using roads and trails to pick up the Roe Green Loop line into Monton. Then its onto the Bridgewater canal towpath to our destination of RHS Bridgewater gardens. After a relaxing cafe stop we then return to Bolton using a canal tow path, trails and roads.
There may be to option to look around the gardens themselves for an hour or so if everyone wants to but please note an entry fee would apply. If we don't look around the gardens the ride will be shorter in length than advertised assuming no punctures or other mishaps!

We start the ride at Halfords, Manchester Road, Bolton. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before the start of the ride for a bike check and ride briefing.

If you have not completed a ride participant form previously for one of the HRS rides, please request one via email [email protected].com, Facebook messenger or through the lets ride site. Please ensure your bike is in good working condition. Check your gears and brakes and if they are a little bit stiff/rusty and you are not sure how to remedy, take it to your local bike shop. They will be happy to take a look. Although helmets are only recommended by law and not deemed to be essential, anyone not wearing a helmet will not be able to join the ride unfortunately. We do have bikes and helmets to hire if required. Please email [email protected] for further information . Please bring your spare inner tubes, bike levers and pump (don’t worry about the latter if you don’t have one). A lock is needed for the café stop as the bike racks will not be visible to us. It is essential that all ride participants carry their own PPE, that is mask, anti bac gel/wipes and tissues. First aid consumables will be provided by the leader but you will need to self-medicate if it is safe to do so.

We never leave anyone behind
