RIDE SUMMARY ##
October’s standard ride sees us revisit an old Allez Prestwich ride we ran up to Winter Hill.
Some good climbs in this ride, including a real steep test at Foxholes just before Winter Hill, then Winter Hill itself before heading out over Sheephouse Lane at Rivington. At approximately 3,700ft of elevation over this distance, it will be a good challenge for all.
