Our Active Outdoors cycling programme offers a range of rides at venues across Wigan and Leigh designed to help you get fit, have fun and enjoy the great outdoors.

 

We are delighted to announce that our cycle programme is back, with rides returning as part of a phased return. New Covid-19 measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of riders and leaders in line with the latest government and British Cycling guidelines, including rides being limited to 6 riders.

All rides now require riders to pre-book their place via British Cycling’s let’s Ride website www.letsride.co.uk

Riders are encouraged to bring their own bike/helmet, although bikes and helmets are available to loan free of charge for IHL rides. Please contact brent.holland@ihlmail.org ahead of attending our rides to book a bike or helmet.
