While the long summer evenings are here I am running a few evening rides which are easily accessible from Manchester. They get published about 1 week before the event. If the weather is bad then the ride will get postponed and I will look for another suitable date.

This ride starts near the river Goyt heading towards Mellor and on to the Cown Edge Way. Atop Cown Edge we will get amazing views over the city of Manchester and also to the Peak District (weather permitting). The route differs from the traditional Marple route and tracks that are shared are typically done in the opposite direction. It has some nice technical decents including the Little Mill decent to Rowarth and The Fox downhill.

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.
