Manhoc ride out to Monyash Sunday 4th February 2024
Starting from our usual Poplar Services at 10.30am and just as our last winter ride out, it was only a slightly shorter route than usual, as the days are getting longer.
On the road, the gang headed south through Knutsford over the bike heaven, Cat and Fiddle pass, into the Peak District and onwards to the antiquated Old Smithy Café for hearty lunch, in Monyash.
Return ride continued on more excellent roads in the southern area of the National Park to Leek, with a coffee and cake stop at the Royal Oak pub, just beyond Rudyard Reservoir.
Then, it was a change of plan, as time was on hand, so our shepherd took us up to Macclesfield on the great twisties to Alderley Edge and then back to Pops for final coffee, cakes and hugs.
A good, fresh day’s riding with some quite strong gusts high on the moors.
Another fun Manhoc day’s ride.
