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

RIDE SUMMARY ##
October’s standard ride sees us revisit an old Allez Prestwich ride we ran up to Winter Hill.
Some good climbs in this ride, including a real steep test at Foxholes just before Winter Hill, then Winter Hill itself before heading out over Sheephouse Lane at Rivington. At approximately 3,700ft of elevation over this distance, it will be a good challenge for all. Read more
