Additional Event Information
Approximately 10 miles beginning from Hulme End car park. This ride takes in sections of the Manifold way and trail and country lanes as well as grassland bridleways offering good opportunities to canter if all riders are happy to do so. The route affords stunning views from the bridleway down into the valley, an opportunity for a paddle and a good view of Thor's Cave. In the event of a wet spell prior to the date the organiser reserves the right to alter the route to avoid a section of the bridleway which can become treacherous in slippery conditions. Distance will however remain the same.
