(Parks Trust) listed rides are rides put on in conjunction with

The Parks Trust as part of their Easy Rider rides programme.

These rides were started to get more people out on their bikes,

And to show how easy it is to get around MK

And the surrounding areas.

All the rides are taken at a pace to suit the slowest

With plenty of stops if needed.

Children are welcome

But under 16’s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The rides will use a mixture of surfaces so robust tyres are advisable.

The rides use the redways, shared use paths and quiet roads where possible.

You are advised to

Ensure that your bicycle is in a roadworthy condition.

Carry a puncture repair kit or spare inner tube.

Bring along a drink or some money to get something at the stop.

(Which is usually about half way or so).

Helmets are a personal choice,

(I’m not going to stop you riding if you’re not wearing one).


This ride is not a race or trial of speed.

The route is on open public shared-route paths and roads.

You are expected to follow the rules of the road and

show consideration to other road/path users.

Although lead, the route is not waymarked or marshalled.

The organiser provides no rescue service.

You are responsible for your own safety/conduct.
