Event Description

An evenings ride down the Irwell valley setting off from Bury and going down the canal to Radcliffe and then down under M62 and back.  Should take around 2.30 hours depending how long we stop for a pint.  We've done this ride nearly every year for as long as we've been Mountain biking, we've even had a few end up in the canal so you've been warned.  Put some lights on as you never know !!! Please can we try and be prompt as we only have a few hours of day light.

December Mob walk

The weather forecast had dire warnings for travel so very limited turn out Average age of the walkers was 70 y.o. There was just a small amount f snow on roads. But the regular track up Pendle hill was hard packed snow hence slippery. Took took the cross country route to Ogden Clough about 6ins of soft snow. Very few people out on the tops. Sorry the younger members were all at home watching City week in fact all back home before kick off
