This challenging but leisurely paced out-and-back ride follows quiet country lanes through the Medlock valley before passing through the outskirts of Daisy Nook and over Hartshead Pike, where you'll feel a world away from the hustle-and-bustle of Manchester.  There's a well earned refreshment stop in the picturesque village of Uppermill before enjoying the route back to the Velodrome.
