2020 Feb Winter Club Ride – Bury, Burnley & Back – Sat 08 Feb  **9am**

Route Link:
Distance: 47 miles
Elevation: 2,800 ft approx.
Moving time: Approx 3.5 hours – 4 Hours // Total Time approx 4 hours-4.5 Hours. (very approximate dependent on rider pace and general stops)
Start: 09:00 at St Mary’s Flower Park, Prestwich
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.

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.
