Please note, our big rides are not for the feint hearted and they are really hilly, tough but ultimately enjoyable rides. We have a lunch stop but they are longer, hillier and slightly faster than our standard rides. If you’re unsure then please speak to us and come to a standard ride first. We’re not ones to be too specific about speed but ideally shouldn’t be much slower than around 12mph average around this sort of course, as otherwise they just take way too long. Thank you.


Route kindly provided by Mark Leigh. Thanks, Mark. Here’s his description of the ride:

Prestwich out to Marple Bridge and on to Cat and Fiddle via Middlewood, Brickworks and Windgather.

A well-earned Café stop at the Peak View Tea Rooms, just after half way, before the descent down to Adlington via Blaze Hill. Then a nice flat run home through Cheadle and the Fallowfield loop.
