Easy Riders / Easy Riders Plus!

"Easy Riders" is our ride aimed at beginners and those returning to cycling happens every Saturday at 10.15am.  Everybody who feels like a short, steady, friendly ride on quiet streets or cycle paths is welcome though.  We start from Rounday Park in Leeds, ride at the pace of the slowest rider for a maximum of 15 miles - no-one is left behind, and there's a café stop either in the middle or at the end.

NEW!  - "Easy Riders Plus!" is our ride for those who would like to go a little further and (just a little) faster.  It will be about 25 miles which will enable us to go to a wider range of places.  It will be on the first Saturday of every month, see the website Rides Calendar for more details.

The meeting point is the main car park (former tram terminus for Roundhay Park), at the junction of Prince’s Avenue and Lidgett Park Road (near main park gates/skate park).

People gather from 10:15 and we start riding at 10:30.  Allow a couple of hours for a gentle, social ride, with a cafe stop either about half way round the ride or at the end. 

For more information have a look at the rides calendar, or contact the easy rides coordinator at easyrides@leedscyclingcampaign.co.uk.

Non-members are welcome to join in a couple of rides initially, but it's important for our insurance that most riders are paid-up members, please talk to your ride leader about joining Leeds Cycling Campaign, or join online here.

Easy Ride - CITY CENTRE START - to Middleton Park

Steven will lead today's easy, friend ride to Middleton Park.  See a plot of the proposed route here (www.plotaroute.com/route/362100) - a bit shorter than usual but it is a steady climb up to the Middleton Park lake café.

Everyone welcome!

NOTE - CITY CENTRE START - this will be the first Easy Ride to start at the City Centre.  Meet at the David Street Cafe, Water Lane, which is just to the south of Leeds Train Station and very close to the canal towpath.
