The Big Bike Ride

Join #TeamWillowwood in a challenging sponsored cycle ride!

Online Registration has now closed, but you will be able to sign up on Sunday morning between 8am - 8.30am at Ashton Leisure Park.

All three routes start and finish in the Ashton Leisure Park on Ashton Moss, so there are plenty of facilities for participants and their supporters.

Suitable for confident and proficient cyclists, the 13 miler should take around an hour (plus stops) to complete. The 20 mile route continues up around Hartshead Pike, taking in some demanding terrain, and if on the day you feel you could complete this ride you can even decide then whether this harder and longer route is for you.

Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by a participating adult, and full details of the route will be forwarded to you once registered.

The 30 mile route is only suitable for experienced distance cyclists, and under 18s must be accompanied by a participating adult.

With 2,000 feet of climbing this challenging course will certainly test your stamina and should take around three hours (plus stops) to complete.

All routes are fully marshalled, with first aiders and a support vehicle.
