TCV Bike weekNot cycled for a while and looking for an easy way to get back in the saddle? Fancy a fun way to get your friends or kids riding? This ride will be great for building confidence for all abilities and ages along a relaxed, traffic-free route, with a gentle pace of around six miles an hour.

Come and join us on this fantastic ride from one of the last remaining examples in Britain of a water-powered mill at Thwaite Mills along the Aire and Calder Navigation to the iconic Royal Armouries museum in Leeds. At 4 miles long this flat ride is perfect for families, new and lapsed cyclists. With so much to see along the way before we stop for refreshments and a breather at The Royal Armouries this ride is not to be missed! We return on the canal back to Thwaite Mills taking in the opposite views of Leeds as we return to our start point.

The ride starts from Thwaite Mills at 10am, but as a bonus you can get a free bike MOT at the Hunslet Club between 8am and 9:30am before you start. The ride will last about 1 hour 45 minutes, with one hour of cycling.
