Planned rides from Irlam Station
Plans afoot for short – medium – and longer rides on a Sunday morning starting from Irlam Railway Station at 09:00 and designed in particular for people who are maybe not that fit; maybe not that experienced as cyclists; ‘reluctant returners’; and others wanting a bit of gentle exercise. An ideal complement to a personal fitness regime – like ‘0-50k in 49 days’! (on which see more below)
More rides and publicity material to follow – for now here is a short and a medium example. No need to wait until September! Try the rides yourself – any time while the sun is shining is a good time to start!
Irlam short circuit with walk alongside the moss
There are opportunities to extend the riding section and avoid the walking if you prefer.
For more about the bog and conservation see: http://www.lancswt.org.uk//reserves/cadishead-moss
Volunteer work parties on Wednesdays and alternate Sundays http://www.lancswt.org.uk/outdoor-volunteering-opportunities
Irlam Astley Worsley Barton: mainly off road lanes and canal side
The route passes by the mining museum at Astley (https://lancashireminingmuseum.org/ limited opening hours) – a fine place for a tea stop – and there are a couple of pubs along the route as well
