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.

As we doubled back from a wrong turn in search of the Loch  Leven Hotel  John B took a call from Andy A suggesting the forecast for the following day favoured doing the  Aonach Eogach ridge. The conversation continued and the next thing I knew we were committed !

The following day we rose at…
