Hello All

We're off to South Manchester tomorrow (Saturday) morning to visit a relative for a short while which gives us the rest of the day (from about midday) to ride somewhere.  Although I'm originally a Mancunian I don't have any idea where would be a good place to either ride to or just a ride generally in that area.  Thinking maybe head to the coast Southport or the like? but happy to go anywhere really.  Anybody have any suggestions ?  :033:

Have a ride to Staffordshire Triumph its worth a look. Then over back towards Ashbourne up through Matlock for a coffee then back home through Chatsworth  :062:

Sounds like a possible plan  :001:

We tend to do Ashbourne/Matlock/Chatsworth a lot as we're only down the road so was thinking maybe somewhere we'd not done before.  However, having just mentioned this thought to Mr TicketyBoo he is nodding in agreement with that ride  :169:

I went up the east of Wales to stockport and there were some fantastic roads.

But then the next day we did matlock etc an the way back so fantastic again

The trip didn't go quite as planned .. didn't leave Altrincham (Manchester) until just after 2.30pm so ended up going north up to Hebden Bridge where my brother has a shop.  We plan a return visit with a much better route planned from TwistyRides.com, but thanks for all your suggestions, I'll be saving them for the next time we're across the hills  :169:
