Another re-run of a ride from 2016 for you all. Nice route this one.

Up around Saddleworth on some cracking roads and of course hilly.

Moving time should be somewhere around 3 to 3.5 hours but this doesn’t include stops, mechanicals or other unplanned events. Always dependent on the pace of the riders who attend and other factors.


If you have a GPS device, please download the route so that you can follow it.

Polite request to not ride off of the front if you either do not have the route or you have not studied it.

Post Ride: TBC – Woodthorpe?

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.

Thanks to Mark Leigh for the title of the ride ;) No corrections please German speakers :)

November’s Sunday ride takes “all over the place”, especially around some of the nice roads around Saddleworth.
The little route around the golf course is particularly nice. Read more
