Cycloan Easy Riders - Stockport Parklife Group Led Ride

​Starting out from Higher Hillgate, we'll use quiet roads and traffic free cycle paths to take us through St Thomas' Park and Woodbank Memorial Park. This ride is perfect for beginners and families alike. There will be plenty of fresh air, beautiful park gardens, the meandering River Goyt and panoramic views over Stockport towards the Peak District. Did you know that Stockport has a Cycle Speedway Track? Well, you'll get to see that too! This is a flat, gentle ride at a nice leisurely pace. We start and finish as a group. No one gets left behind.
