    A free family cycling event for all ages and abilities. Navigate your way via cycle paths to find orienteering the orienteering checkpoints.

    Hop on your bikes this Easter to explore Swindon's cycle paths with a free cycle orienteering challenge! Back by popular demand, Swindon Cycle Campaign have organised the event to encourage people to explore their local area by bike. With a cycle orienteering map you can navigate your way around Swindon on traffic-free cycle paths and discover so much more from the saddle of your bike. As part of a group or as an individual you can choose between 1, 2 or 3 hour rides (must be finished by 3pm). Collect orienteering points along the way and hand your points cards in at the checkpoint when you finish - prizes awarded for the three highest scores in each time category. All you need is a roadworthy bike, but we have volunteers on site to check it's safe to ride. We also recommended that you carry a pump and a spare inner tube or puncture repair kit just in case!
