    we ride lee quarry quite often...

    i would like to ride holcombe hill i hear good things around this area local knowladge is always best..
  • I'm in Bury, but sadly the place is surrounded by nothing other than footpaths. It really gets my goat! My brother is in a club to get more bridleways made (though he's into horses).

    Where abouts are you based? I'm in Walshaw at weekends, so not too far from Holcombe/Ramsbottom.
    It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.

    Hi,

    I am from Bury also - near Fairfield Hospital. Just got into mountain biking the last couple of months. I am a newbie rider - a fat boy trying to get fit.

    Would love to meet up for rides around Bury? I normally ride from the hospital up to Knowl Hill.

    Matt.
