While the long summer evenings are here I plan to run a few evening rides which are easily accessible from Manchester. The plan will be to publish the ride about 1 week before. If the weather is bad then the ride will get postponed and I will look for another suitable date.

This ride covers a loop around the Marple area bordering on the Peak District, easily accessible from Greater Manchester. There are some great technical descents including Zig Zag, Little Mill Descent, The Fox DH.

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