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
This month’s standard ride returns to normal, starting and ending in Prestwich.
Meetup is as per usual at 9am outside the gates of St. Mary’s Flower Park, Prestwich. Rob & Mark will be leading the ride, so just give them a shout when you get there.
