Starting point


We'll take the cycle path from Dragon Rd car park (Asda) all the way to Ripley. If we feel comfortable and confident we may keep going to Hampsthwaite for a cuppa and return via Killinghall and Knox, or we may choose simply to stay in Ripley and return the way we came.

A Sunday cafe ride ideal for beginners and those of us who just want a steady sociable ride - the route uses the Ripley Cycle Path / Greenway and quieter roads.

Dependent on the comfort and confidence of the group, we may decide to head to Sophie's tea room at Hampsthwaite (via country lanes and cycle paths) or we may keep it simple and take the cycle path to Ripley for coffee and cake. We stay off main roads, spend as much time as we can rolling through the countryside, and avoid traffic as much as possible

Cafe stop for refreshments and chatting is the main purpose of this ride! At Liferiders we choose cake over carbon, laughter over lycra and slo-mo over aero.

Keep an eye on the weather forecast - waterproofs may be required. Money for refreshments is advised.

We never leave anyone behind
