Starting point


Why not do something different with your bike riding?

A special pair of rides on the longest day of the year, the Summer Solstice.

We’ll have an early start to see the sunrise in the east, then later in the day we’ll ride to see the sunset in the west. It’s a Friday so you can go to work in-between :)

These rides will be relatively short and will travel east for the sunrise and west for the sunset to a place not too far away to view the beauty of the sun’s first and final moments on the longest day.

Remember you’ll need lights on your bike and you may need to wear cold weather clothing, as these times of the day will be cooler, even at this time of year. Please feel free to bring along drinks and food to share for breakfast and an evening snack as there’ll be no café or pub stops on these rides.
