NWA regional ride: Macclesfield Forest, Goyt Valley and Buxton

Image

:: Date: Saturday 26th November 2011
:: Distance/time: 15-20 miles / 5-6 hours riding.
:: Meeting at Leather's Smithy Inn at 10am for 10:30am start.
[Free parking available on the road outside the pub alongside the reservoir but please don't use the pub car park]
:: Directions: here
:: Terrain: Well drained fire roads, rocky descents, and moorland tracks. Some road sections and a few long climbs. Nothing particularly technical or steep but plenty of rocks and fast descents.

The ride starts and finishes outside a great little pub which will be well worth a visit.
This is a tried and tested all weather route, which enjoys great views and proper old school riding. It's certainly hilly but well worth it for about 20 miles of retro fun.

More details to follow.
Please let me know if you can make it on this thread.
Cheers.
