Starting from the bottom of Chapeltown Road this ride takes us through the villages of Bromley Cross and Egerton where we turn left and head towards Belmont Reservoir. Having crossed the reservoir we pick up Belmont Road and pass through Abbey Village, Ripley Green and head to Feniscowles and the beautiful countryside before stopping at Vaughn’s Café, Tockholes for a well-earned break. We continue to enjoy the countryside through Tockholes and pick up Belmont Road and head back to Bromley Cross.

Don't say no until you've had a go!

Please ensure your bike is in good working condition. Check your gears and brakes at least the night before.

Although helmets are only recommended by law and not deemed to be essential, anyone not wearing a helmet will be unable to join in on the ride, unfortunately. Don’t forget some cash for the café stop, as some places do not take cards. Also please remember to bring
spare inner tubes, tyre levers and pump. A lock for the cafe stop would be advisable.

Due to Covid, It is essential that all ride participants’ carry their own PPE that is mask, hand gel and tissues. The leaders will carry first aid consumables but you will have to apply yourself. The same applies for any punctures or bike maintenance guidance will be offered at a safe distance.
