Usual Saturday route heads towards Bolton, on to Horwich then turning onto the A6 cutting through to Farnworth finishing at Little Lever.

The route home can be whichever direction you choose, and at any speed, some groups might form with faster and slower riders in each one. Nothing is set in stone and things can be tweaked as the ride progresses. The Saturday social is for anyone and not restricted to club members only. Bring your friends, family and colleagues and introduce them to the Bury Clarion crowd! You can come on this ride three times as a non member before we expect to join the club. This is a requirement of the club insurers; so come and enjoy the social. On our rides we expect all riders to adhere to the Highway Code and Bury Clarion do not take responsibility for individuals. We expect your bike to be in working order and if you are coming out to have the minimum of the following; Inner-tube, puncture repair kit, pump, tyre levers, emergency contact details.

50 miles to the top of the climb near Beeley and I have 3 spaces left for a ride home . (Although I might cycle back ) I know at least 5 members are doing the hill climb … if anyone wants to do it the other way round ( ie get a lift to Beeley then cycle home they can let us know and arrange something with Adele …

Note:

Before committing to a ride with Bury Clarion Cycling Club please have a look at the route and be honest with yourself and make sure you can do the full ride at the pace outlined. This is not intended to put anyone off, it is to make sure everyone who comes out with Bury Clarion has the best possible experience we can offer. There is nothing macho about slowing a group down or bonking on a ride.

All ride speeds are ensured by the ride leaders. If you feel the ride is too slow and want to go off, then the responsibility is on you to make sure you have a safe ride and get home under your own steam. It is not the responsibility of Bury Clarion or the ride leader to ensure you know the route and/or a safe route back home. Please ensure you have a working bike.
