Starting from Holcombe Tennis Club, North Bury, along Hazel Hall Lane to Summerseat Lane to Holcombe Brook and along the A676 for a brief spell then back we will head to Stubbins and Irwell Vale onto Route 6 along the trail then a road incline up to Edenfield and down the A56 (the quieter end!) to Rowlands Road then down into Summerseat and back to the start. This is a mixed route, with some rough trails and long steady inclines.

Suitable for a mountain or hybrid bike. You will need a level of fitness and confidence on roads, ability to cope with some short steep inclines but if you need to get off and walk sometimes, its not a problem! Bring a helmet, roadworthy bike, inner tube specific to your bike and dress for the weather. Check your tyres are pumped up and your seat height is high enough. Have it as high as you can manage which eases the strain on your knees!

Check your brakes are working. if they aren’t you will not be allowed to ride. The more comfortable and efficient your bike is the more you will enjoy the ride! If its been in the shed a while a bike service at a reputable shop is a good idea. Bring water and snacks as we wont have a brew stop on this ride.

Places are limited so please book online.
