Starting point

Greater Manchester

It consists of pathways , cycle paths , tow paths , quiet roads and a couple of very small bits of busy roads .All are suitable for CX , hybrids and road bikes with care , there are a few gentle climbs but nothing too taxing , we also take in the new busway which is absolutely brilliant for us .

We will stop for lunch at The Old Boathouse at Astley .
Please can people message me what you wish to eat from this menu , please note they do not do sandwiches on saturdays .

Please make sure you are fit enough to complete a 30 mile bike ride , we ride at a social pace of 9/11mph so we can have a chat and enjoy the views .
Also please make sure you check your bike over the night before and carry a couple of spare innertubes and a means of inflating them .
Now for the serious bit , no one must go forward of the front ride leader , it is not a race , anyone who does will be asked to leave the ride , as safety is priority on the rides .Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time to get your kit and bikes ready , there are toilets available at the sports centre if you ask them nicely .
Please note for the foreseeable future if you wish to ride you need to message me to be added . This is due to no shows , serial cancelations the day before , and also people using the group by double booking different rides . If you want to ride other peoples rides when we are riding please dont expect to be added to rides before our regular riders who stay loyal to the group . Any left over places will be released a few days before the ride . Too many people have used and abused the group of late .
