This ride will consist of a circular route into the east of the city, taking in a number of newish developments, as well as a few parks.

Rides are generally around 30-40 miles in length, although winter rides are shorter. Rides start at 10am all year round. Often there is the option to return by train for a shorter ride. A lunch break is usually taken in a suitable pub or café en route, although you are welcome to bring your own picnic if you wish. Rides are usually on tarmac surfaces (road or path) and suitable for most types of bikes, e.g. tourer, racer, hybrid, mountain bike, but will occasionally feature sections of route on rougher paths or tracks – see ride descriptions for details.

GoBike rides are social rides for GoBike members, and are not a club run. We would ask that anyone coming along adheres to the rules of the road, rides no more than two abreast, and takes the safety of other riders around them into account when cycling.

If attending GoBike rides, please take a note of the GoBike phone number 07932 460093 to bring with you.  Note: please only use this phone number for our rides; it is not a general contact number.
