I’ll start out with the customary big ride disclaimer, as it’s important for these big rides. : our big rides are not for the fainthearted 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 and it’ll be a real tough day in the saddle.
Re-run of the excellent confessions on cassettes route.
Confessions on Cassettes. Starting at SMFP, straight out Cat and Fiddle via Marple and Windgather. Back on the lanes to Adlington via Blaze Hill. Then a nice flat run home through Cheadle and the Fallowfield loop.
If you have a GPS device, please download the route so that you can follow it.
Polite request to not ride off of the front if you either do not have the route or you have not studied it.
