Been out today plotting the route for ‘Gatley Denton Poynton Ridearound ….GDPR …..it’s in the data!’ [(c) GTTC Ltd]. First leg is nice and easy – no hills to speak of – 16k – a pretty easy less than an hour ending in a break for lunch at the Lowes Arms.
The route from garmin is here https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/2610670070
For any ‘reluctant returners’ look away from the second leg. 850m elevation. 50km. Just over three hours: scenic countryside featuring Broadbottom, Charlesworth, Monks Road, Hayfield, skirting New Mills, Furness Vale, Whaley Bridge, Hr. Disley, Pott Shrigley and Poynton. That’s pretty. Hilly. Pretty and hilly. In short pretty hilly.
Sadly it seems that the Coffee Tavern in Poynton will be closed when the run is practised on 20 April but after extensive research an alternative finishing point has been identified …. at Cask Tavern for refreshment after the ride. Eastern Nights was in fine form when assessed in the matrix of suitability for this venue. Expected nothing less from Bollington.
