I've moved up to Newcastle now, student life eh!
However the guys on this thread are good guys, and may be organising something soon.

I presume you ride up to Rivington Darwen etc too?

Whereabouts in Bolton are you? I'm in Westhoughton when I'm home, probably next around Easter

The key to Rivi is to not go on Sundays :p

Or to know where exactly to go ;)

In summer, evening rides are excellent up there, not a soul about at 9 o'clock ish and there's some great sunsets out towards the coast

I'll give you a shout when I'm home. Perhaps I could show you some bits you might not have found?

I'm a ex Bolton local, used to live down the Road in Harwood. Now living in Darwen. But pop down when I'm off. Can organize something if you want. Don't have access to a car tho unfortunately unless the wife is off work.
