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 - Headingley

Today's ride is to Headingley.

Please note that while we are currently trying to arrange a leader for this ride, if one cannot be arranged please can the riders who turn up negotiate a ride between themselves.  Usually most of the riders on the Easy Rides have been before many times, know the route and are friendly and helpful to others etc.!
