Unless specified in the ride details below, all rides will start from outside the front of St Mary’s Flower Park on Bury New Road [ MAP! ] . Rides will end back in Prestwich where we usually have an optional post ride “refuel” at a pub/cafe.
We run two “categories” of rides but we don’t do the usual “A,B or C” stuff. They are our ‘Standard Ride’ (“Stn” in the Category section on the rides list) (around 30-40 miles with hills | pretty hard) and our ‘Big Ride’ (“Big” in the Category section on the rides list) (approx 50-60miles plus, loads of hills & hard). The big rides will be slightly smaller in the winter months of December, January and February – more akin to the Standard rides. If you’re unsure on your fitness or worried about the bigger distances, then come down and join us for one of our ‘Standard’ rides first and see what you think.
‘Standard’ rides don’t usually have a cafe stop halfway round (unless the mood really takes us) but we always stop for lunch/snack on the ‘Big’ rides.
We also create events for each of our rides over on Facebook. You can find the events on our Facebook page.
Please check here, our Facebook or Twitter channels periodically, and especially the day of the ride, to ensure nothing has changed. We sometimes have to make weather enforced changes to start times or in extremes may even have to cancel rides.
N.B. All our routes are free for anyone to use but if you are a club or group and use one of our routes exactly as is then please give a nod that we actually devised the route. We take a lot of time and put a lot of effort to create all our routes from scratch and take a lot of pride in doing so.
