January 9th 2016 – Standard Ride – Rivington // 10am @ St Mary’s Flower Park, Prestwich
Route: Rivington GPX
Distance: 37 miles
Climbs: approx. 2,500ft
Moving Time: 2.5–3 hours approx.
First ride of 2016. Start as you mean to go on! Get out with us and let’s get those legs turning.
Given Sir Bradley Wiggins’ recent declaration that Rivington Pike was one of his favourite places to cycle, it got me thinking that we should do Sheephouse Lane, Rivington again soon. “Soon” quickly turned into “we should do it on the next ride”.
Great climb, should get the heart going and great scenery. Hope to see you all there!
We complete the route as fast as the slowest rider and always wait at the top of hills and major turns.
