## BIG RIDE DISCLAIMER ##
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. Thank you.

## RIDE INFO ##

The second big ride of the year. You big ride veterans know the drill by now, it’ll be hilly.
5,400ft of climbing over 65 miles should be enough for most of us, but should be a walk in the park for the Tour de Manc riders among us. Read more
