I notice this post on the RSF website noticeboard this week ‘Saddleworth based RSF members Rob Newton, Phil Spencer and Mick Ely have decided to offer a regular monthly ride around the beautiful Saddleworth countryside, maybe exploring some of the delights of Oldham, Rochdale and Tameside too! They plan to make the majority of every ride off road using the many bridleways, old railways and canal towpaths as much as possible. All are welcome and they will be using the local media to try to encourage some potential new members to join them; an ideal opportunity for existing members to bring along a friend. They will be starting and finishing from the same spot in Uppermill, the Lime Kiln Cafe, part of the Brownhills Visitor Centre on the Huddersfield Canal, meeting up from 9-30am in time for a brew before setting off at 10am. As there is very limited parking at the cafe please use the following parking information: Park at Canalside Free Car Park off Wool Road SD995064 Nearest Post Code for Sat Nav OL3 5NW For dates see Northern Peak & South Pennine page’
The first of these rides being on Tuesday 8th October. The only other comment I going to make is that I wish that more RSF members would do the same thing and well done to Rob, Phil and Mick for volunteering to lead this new monthly ride.
