Starting from - Meeting at Rose Hill station in Marple, please make sure you wear a helmet. Bring a puncture repair kit, snacks and suitable clothing in case the weather isn't so great. Depending on who is on the ride, the estimated time is something of a guess, but no one will be left behind. We can have a toilet stop at Marple Memorial Park - which should hopefully be open - at just over 4 miles. Also, IF the coffee van is there, just before the end, we can stop for a break if anyone fancies it!

Marple

A breathtaking route with a fresh surprise round every corner, swooping gravel descents, a river crossing and an ancient chapel to whet your appetite. Then some of the greatest engineering feats of the English canal network, the superhighways of the 1800's, complete with  horse drawn boats (maybe), but even without those you'll still need to pass through the way that they once walked.
