Did the ride with my 17 year old cycle freak son, I hadn't ridden any distance for approx' 30 years, did the FIDO without stopping which shows how gentle it is, We will be going again, maybe even weekly to build me up.

Enjoyable cycle ride with kids and grand kids. Picnic half way round then the kids still had enough energy left to go on wooden obstacle apparatus.
