Home of the famous concrete cows and the lesser known tree cathedral, where you can cycle along old railway lines, beside river and canal, see thatched cottages and a pub, a windmill, a peace pagoda..... all in one city. Come with Wheelers to explore Milton Keynes, using the motor-traffic free redways.
We have devised a route of about 25 miles around the city which will include all the delights described above plus more! Very little riding on roads with motor traffic, but pretty much all surfaced routes, so suitable for any bike. However if you have a folding one please consider bringing it as it may reduce any problems with getting everyone on trains.
Meet on top of the Green Bridge at 08.45 to cycle with the group to Euston station (NB This will not be motor traffic free!) or make your own way there and meet us at the ticket office at around 09.35. You can take your bike on the Hammersmith and City and the Metropolitan line to Euston Square and both should be running but check on TFL's website to be sure. Fare is £14.50 return, but that will be reduced if we can get groupsave tickets - don't be late if you want to take advantage of one of these, and then be sure to keep with the group for the return journey.
We'll stop for a cafe lunch somewhere along the way but it may be lateish, so please bring snacks and something to drink just in case. There will also be the option to picnic instead - but not under cover if it's raining! We are always close to civilisation so we may well get an extra stop or two into the day. We'll return around 4-5 pm, so back in London 5-6pm and then a group ride back to Mile End if required.

Upcoming rides & events
Our rides are highlighted by "RIDE". You don't have to be a member to join in and we're also always looking for new ride ideas. Contact our Rides Co-ordinator for further information.
There is no need to register beforehand for a ride unless this is specifically stated, most rides are "turn up and go".
Please note that for train assisted rides we often cannot publish times until about 2 weeks beforehand because of the need to check engineering works. Also sometimes our ride leaders do have to change dates/times/routes at reasonably short notice. Generally this website will be up to date and also details will be sent out to our email groups, but if in doubt contact the ride leader or our rides co-ordinator to check arrangements.
