Rochdale Gpx routes

The Rochdale routes should be appearing soon on the right. Generally Mark does this but as he became a Dad over the Christmas break, he might have his hands full, so please bear with us.

We will put up the Off-road routes as well but these are not checked and you should only down load these on Friday night after 7pm to allow us to make changes if needbe.

It's looking pretty cold on Sat night/Sun morning (-6 in Hebden, probably -8 up on the moors). What are the roads like on the route, are they all gritted? Will there be another recce before Sunday as I'm a bit worried about ice. Cheers.

I think we'll get a good idea of what the roads are like on Saturday as we'll be driving around doing the drinks stations, etc for the mountain bike ride.

Dean usually checks the road route in the eary hours of Sunday morning so maybe check the blog before you leave but at the moment the roads seem ok.

Hi Jason,

Sorry not to get back to you on Saturday night, I didn't have time to get on the blog.

The ride did go ahead, with a few changes, and the worst roads were around Todmorden! If you rode sensibly, not leaning over into corners at full spead etc, then the roads were fine. AS far as I'm aware, no one fell off.

In general, if there is nothing on the blog to say the ride is cancelled, then it'll be going ahead.
