The ride starts following tracks along the Goyt Valley passing Roman Lakes to get us warmed up before a stiff and technical climb up on the pasture lands above New Mills with fine views over to Kinder Scout.

Following a fast descent, partly on road into Thornsett, we start the second big climb of the day up the flank of Lantern Pike, before an exillarating descent into Rowarth. 

After a fun water splash the final big climb takes us over Cown Edge with its fine views over Greater Manchester and the Cheshire Plain. From here the route is mainly downhill back to the Goyt Valley.

For this ride you will need to be competent on red-graded descents and have a good hard tail or full suspension mountain bike.
