‘G-D-P-Ridearound! It’s in the data!’ (3rd ed. 19 05 18)

Yes – time for another ridearound. The next edition of the Gatley Denton Poynton Ridearound will be 19 May 2018!

DO NOT EXPECT  loads of free advice about compliance with the GDPR!

DO EXPECT some light reference to the right to be forgotten!

It will probably be far too late for any big corporations who have not yet updated their privacy policies to do so prior to 25 May but those are not really our concern. Except on a personal level – who does not want to be free of prying corporations? But on a more interesting level this ridearound features some alliterative suburban flat lining and then some pretty significant hill climbing!

Long Lane and Monks Road (Charlesworth)! Whaley Lane (Whaley Bridge)! Mudhurst Lane and Higher Lane (Higher Disley and Kettleshulme)! Then back from hillside to the flat side to Pott Shrigley and Poynton!

850m gain; 50km (about three hours at pretty moderate pace)


The first section is – with reluctant returners in mind and plenty of public transport joining or leaving opportunities – far easier. It’s less than an hour – barely ten miles and pretty much no climbing at all.


If you don’t want to have a go at the harder stuff the van can!

Travel home by bike on the flat side! Or by train from Poynton. Plenty of sustenance opportunities en route. As well as a bit of G-D-P-R!
