Destination Stinkbomb Hill!  This ride makes its way up Bolton's Middlebrook Trail as it meanders alongside the River Croal.  Keep your eyes peeled as you pass Deane Golf Club and the observant amongst you will spot an imposter along the trail; it’s a mobile phone mast disguised as a fir tree.  You may have perch and roach swimming alongside you and, if you are quick, you'll catch a glimpse of kingfishers as they skim above the water.  Sections of the trail are on loose shale so wider tyres are a sensible choice. If you’re fairly confident on your bike and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, our Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills along the way, rides take place on mainly quiet roads with plenty of sights along the way. Rides are between 6 and 20 miles long, at a moderate pace of between 7 and 10 miles an hour.
