Starting point


Starting at the Planks car park we'll head down through the Lawns on a combination of traffic-free cycle paths and quiet roads. Passing New College we'll loop around some of the green spaces of the Parks, Liden and Eldene towards Coate Water. We'll then head back up to Old Town to the finish point. As usual, this is a social ride designed to help you explore some of your local area from the saddle. No lycra or special equipment is required and we ride at the speed of the slowest rider. Hope to see you there :)

Route rating

0 stars (0) Reviews

A social ride following cycle paths and a few quiet roads from the Lawns in Old Town and taking a loop around the east of Swindon.

We'll be predominately using paved cycle paths and roads, which are either traffic-free or very quiet. All types of cycles and riders are welcome.

We can stop at any point for a breather, a drink or just for a little chat. Speed is discouraged on these rides, it's about being social and exploring your local area :)

Helmets are compulsory for under 16's but not for adults, although we recommend wearing one. It's a good idea to bring along a drink and a snack and any basic tools, just in case.

We never leave anyone behind
