Rivington/West Pennine Moors Tonight (8/8/12)

Postby compo » Wed Aug 08, 2012 15:29 pm

Given this weather will probably not last, I'm going up to Rivington/West Pennine Moors tonight, was wondering if anyone is up for joining?

Time, place and pace negotiable :D

No car transport so can only reach Rivington or somewhere rideable from Bolton
Great idea however

Have you got any good routes for say 1.5hr ride, plenty of good rough stuff, more downhill than uphill ;)
I kind of know the area, but no overly well. Could maybe meet somewhere say 7:30.

Yeah I have a few routes, but I wouldn't say they were anything too rough, a lot lot gentler than Lee. If you are looking for something gnarly, get to Lee

Yeah a good circular ride from there. And there is a road up to the side of the pub. Take that and the car park is immediately on your left. Or there is ample parking on the side road. I'll be on my Canyon. Shall we say about 7.40? is that ok with you?
