As this is an evening ride there will be no café stop/toilets. (But there are a couple of pubs on the route) Please also bring along with fully operational front & back bike light in case it gets dark.
Starting from the Hollingwood Hub, we will travel towards Barrow Hill and within 15 mins we will be in the beautiful countryside, it will be a gradual ascend to Middle Handley then we will descend into Troway, then up and over to Apperknowle to see the some of the most beautiful views, before heading back to the starting point.
Albeit only 12 miles this ride is a still a challenge and suits those wishing to tackle the hills that surround us, this ride is a good introduction without it being overwhelming.
Unfortunately, this ride is not for beginners...
- This ride is suitable for those who are confident on the road, I have tried to keep us off the main
roads as much as is practically possible...but some cannot be avoided.
- Helmets are compulsory for this ride.
- Bring water/snacks/gels/money/repair kit/inner tube(s)/lock for bike
- Wear appropriate clothing suited to the English weather!..good luck with that!
Parking is available around the Hollingwood Hub area, please keep valuables well-hidden as no responsibility will be taken for damage to vehicles whilst we are on the ride.
