Will be updated after route recce.
The ride will be close to 15 miles with options for more or less available. We will ride out of the valley past Bacup and up onto the moors looping over the Clough Bottom Reservoir and back down into Rawtenstall via the Pennine Bridleway. I have two additional bolt ons which may be thrown into the route depending on how my solo recce goes on Sat.
Depending on the timings I get from the recce we will either have the customary mid way pub stop or we will stock up on the return to Rawtenstall like we did on the Rivington Ride.
A few more details of the terrain etc following this weekends recce.
