GMCC Social Bike Ride 20th August 2015
GMCC’s next social ride is on Thursday 20th August, meet in Albert Square from 5.30pm for a 6pm departure.
Ride from Manchester city centre…
Rob’s description: “An annual favourite, this ride goes from Albert Square via Route 6 and the Irwell Valley (including the Sculpture Park and mountain bike trails) to Clifton Country Park and the Horseshoe Inn at Ringley, which has real ales, food and a nice garden if the weather’s nice. We can go via some single track trails on the way there and back down the nicely tarmacked Route 6 on the way back. Or we can go up Route 6 and return via the ‘devilish’ hill to the A 666 and whizz downhill back through Salford. Not ideal for skinny tyres or fixies, but manageable. Lights essential, waterproofs maybe, positive mental attitude a bonus :-)”
No need to join or sign up, just turn up and ride.
We ride at a gentle pace with a ride leader and back marker.
The rides are organised by our social secretary Rob Raikes – raikes[at]gmail.com
This is the third of seven GMCC social rides in 2015.
