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
Route kindly provided by Mark Leigh while I (Craig) have been away in France.
It’s a reworking of the Manctucket ride and clocks in at 43 miles and around 3,000ft of climbing. Looking forward to it.

Please note, our big rides are not for the feint hearted 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. Read more
