RIDE SUMMARY ##

Another from the AP vaults. This one is up around an Allez P favourite of Saddleworth/Diggle area. Pretty much heading to Standedge Tunnel and back. Some real tasty little climbs in this one so, as ever, pack your climbing legs.

This was meant to be the previous ride but pretty sure no-one rode it as weather was hoorendous. Read more
