Post Ride: Parkfield Inn, Whitefield (Prestwich only 1.5 miles away if you don’t want to attend post ride)?
This ride is a little longer distance but please don’t be hugely put off, as the climbing is (relatively) less to compensate.
That said, it’s an Allez Prestwich ride and the climbing still clocks in at 2,800ft, so don’t be expecting a flat one!
Rob has put together a great route, heading up as far as Burnley, via the Rossendale valley, past dunnockshaw reservoir. On the way home we come back via Ramsbottom. It’s a nice undulating route, which should give you a little bit of everything.
This route actually ends at previous end point of Parkfield Inn , Whitefield. Could always stop here for the post ride but familiarise yourself with the way home from that location.
