Event Description

I am planning to do on our usual ride down the Irwell Valley.

Leaving mine at 6pm or Meeting up at Tenterden street in Bury by Bury Grammar school where we will be away at 6.15 prompt.  The route will be going down the Canal into Radcliffe and, then on to the Phillips Park where there will be an option to take in the single track routes.  Approximately 2.30.00 hours and perhaps a pint on the way back at the Horseshoe pub in Ringley. This will be a medium ride of around 18 miles mainly flat ish with no major hills. There is an option for anyone to cut it shorter and meet us in the pub later. If you are unsure give me a call, or send me a message.  Don't forget your lights.  If it's a bad night I will be re arranging it for another night                           Regards Derek ((-:

The following day we rose at…
