Starting point




Greater Manchester
SK14 2BT

Although ridden at a steady pace this is quite a challenging ride with a fair few climbs for experienced cyclists (see route map)

Mostly on busy roads we leave Hyde station over Wernerth Low to Marple, from there we climb up & along Glossop rd descending in to Glossop, then climb out of Glossop via B6105 Woodhead road alongside Torside Reservoir to Crowden, the furthest point of the ride.
Our return is quite straight forward & sees us riding back along Woodhead road on the opposite side of Torside (very busy traffic wise) through Tintwistle, Hollingworth, Godley & finally returning back at Hyde Station.

GENERAL

HSBC UK Ride Social rides are organised by members of the HSBC UK Ride Social online
community, and are not organised, approved, or insured by British Cycling. Riders take part
at their own risk.

Riders must be at least aged 16 or above to participate unless accompanied by a parent or
guardian. The organiser has the right to carry out the necessary checks and refuse
participation in the ride should those checks not be satisfactory.

Riders’ health

Cycling is a physical activity and can be strenuous. Riders should be in good health and any rider who
has a doubt about their health or fitness, or who has a medical condition or injury that could be
affected by exercise (particularly a heart condition), should consult their doctor before participating.
No-one should participate in a ride under the influence of alcohol or drugs (complying with the Road
Traffic Act 1988).

Cycles

All rides are designed entirely for cycles (including electric cycles). All riders must ensure that their
cycles are in a roadworthy condition, must observe the rules of the Highway Code and follow the
instructions of any officials, marshals and the Police. The organisers’ decision shall be final as to
whether a cycle is of an appropriate type or condition to participate on rides.

Helmets

In compliance with British Cycling’s rules and regulations, helmets are compulsory for under-18s, and
recommended but not compulsory for adults, taking part in our rides.
