Families across Wigan Borough are gearing up for the second Cycle Three Sisters event of the year.

Be Well Wigan’s fabulous free fun day returns to Ashton-in-Makerfield’s Three Sisters Circuit on Wednesday 20 September (3pm-8pm) with a range of activities on and off the track.

As always, cyclists of all ages and abilities can ride their bikes on the course while there’ll also be cycle skills, balance bikes for under 5s, free bike services and entertainment including a climbing wall, face painting and more.

Councillor Chris Ready, Wigan Council’s portfolio holder for communities and neighbourhoods, said: “We had an absolute blast at our first event in May and we can’t wait to do it all again!

“Those who’ve been before will know exactly what to expect, but if you’ve yet to experience Cycle Three Sisters then please come along and join in the fun. We promise you’ll have a brilliant time.

“It doesn’t matter what age you are or if you’re a regular rider or a novice; absolutely everyone can get involved and even if you don’t have a bike or helmet you can borrow one from us for free. We also have a range of adapted cycles for people with various disabilities.

“Cycle Three Sisters is always one of the most enjoyable days of the year - so you won’t want to miss it!”

Around 1,000 people attended May’s event and another healthy turnout is expected with the majority of activities getting underway just as schools finish for the day.

Meanwhile, from 1.30pm, there’s once again a chance for those with balance bikes, bikes with stabilisers and adapted bikes to have a go on the main circuit – ideal for young children who need an adult to accompany them.

While these bikes won’t be permitted on the main track beyond 3pm, dedicated areas of the venue will be set aside for the remainder of the day.

Free parking is available on site but families who live locally are encouraged to walk or cycle to the event where possible.
