Ladies’ Cake Burner Ride

Ladies’ Cake Burner Ride

Ladies, our first ride of 2018 is a classic XC route. It will be novice friendly due to its lack of technical features. The distance is slightly longer than our usual Novice rides, but no-one will be left behind. We may experience any weather in January so please dress suitably for wind / ice / snow / rain /mud …am I selling this to you ?!

We will be heading up to the Ridgeway on hardpack trails and making our way to Totterdown Woods, and then onto the access road through the Manton Estate where the views are wonderful. From here we head into Marlborough and a lovely quiet road descent.

We plan to stop at a café at around the halfway point. From here we will make our way to the old railway line and back to Chiseldon (where there is the opportunity to stop again around 3 miles from the finish to get hot drinks if necessary!) and then Coate Water.

Join us and blow away those Christmas cobwebs .


Please bring water and extra food because of the distance and time of year: keep fuelled = keep warm

Meet by the diving board at Coate Water at 9.45, ready for a 10.00am start.

Please note there is a £2 car park charge at Coate Water for all day parking .

    Hi Alison , I dont think this would be suitable for a hybrid as part of it is on fields and muddy woods . But the following months Ladies ride which I will also be leading would be suitable for a hybrid and a beginner . The ride will be posted up a month before the event ….look out for it , its ‘Ladies Tracks and Trails urban ride and will be on the cycleways around Swindon . Hope you will be able to make that one
