NWA: Hobson Moor - East Manchester Moors ~ Saturday 11th June 2011

Image

:: Date: Saturday 11th June 2011
:: Distance/time: 10 - 12 Miles with various route options/approx 3-4 hrs including stops.
:: Meeting at: 10am. Ride starts at 10:30am. Free Parking on Hobson Moor Road at Hobson Moor Climbing Quarry. Matley near Hyde and Staleybridge.
:: Postcode: TBC. Grid Ref: SJ 989 967
:: Directions: 2 miles from the eastern end of the M67, off the A6018.
:: Terrain: Practically all off road, on a mixture of well surfaced , natural byways and some great sections of singletrack.


We'll be riding on Hollingworth Hall Moor. The weather and number of riders riding it will define exactly which route we take and the trails we ride. This is mrlee's local patch so he will be showing us around.

Please bring some food with you and be prepared if the weather is bad. It can be very exposed on the top of the moors.

Looking forward to this one!

Listening to you pair gushing in the car on the way back from the 'Pines I could well believe this might be the ride that gets talked about for the rest of 2011! Heartbreaking I can't make it - not least of all because we'll have to go back without the safety net of RB ride etiquette to protect me from the lunatics! :shock:
