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 - Meanwood Valley Urban Farm

Allan will lead the Easy Ride today to Meanwood Valley Urban Farm, to link with the Wheels 4 Fun group.  Some of the people attending Wheels 4 Fun may ride with the Easy Ride group for a short distance go gain confidence and experience riding with a slower, friendly group of cyclists.

There may be refreshments provided by Wheels 4 Fun, if so a donation is requested.  There is also a nice cafe.

Everyone welcome!

Kat will lead the group to Meanwood Valley Urban Farm to link with the Wheels 4 Fun group.  There is a nice cafe there for refreshments, and you can learn about the purpose of the group and get involved too if you wish.

We hope to form links between the Easy Ride and the Wheels 4 Fun groups so that some of those attending Wheels 4 Fun can gain experience and confidence riding with a slower, friendly group.
