It’s happening 11am – 4pm so we’ll arrive about an hour after it starts.

Find out more on their event page:

There will be two meeting points that you can join us at for the bike ride:

10.15am for an 10.30am departure at the Wyther Lane Car Park by the canal towpath, at the junction of Wyther Lane and Broad Lane in Kirkstall.

11.00am at Office Lock on the canal towpath, near the candlestick building at Granary Wharf.

It’s a flat ride along a mixture of towpath and roads. We’ll keep to the towpath and quieter roads as much as possible. It’s about 8 miles. There’s bike parking at the centre but please bring a lock.

Anyone is welcome to join us (including children if they are accompanied by an adult)!. Please make sure your bike is roadworthy (tyres pumped up and brakes working is a good start). We’ll be cycling back too, but we can have a chat and decide a time together 🙂

PLUS! We will be offering free bike checks, tune-ups basic repairs at the Open Day. We’ll have a limited number of free parts like cables, brake pads and chains available if you’re a bit strapped for cash.
