Circular routes around Manchester

Hi All. I'm trying to come up with a route that stays no more than 15 miles away from the centre of Manchester, but preferably where the route is circular. Does anyone know any sites that might have this route in GPX form or know an easy way to create one (or know a route themselves) ? :)

Thanks in advance

    It's easy enough to create your own. That's what I do anyway.

    What website to do you use cougie? Most of the ones I've used only seem to let you set a POint A and B

    I use Garmin connect and plot it bit by bit. Takes longer but it's worth it to choose interesting routes. Then download into my Garmin and away.

    I do the same thing on Strava routes.

    The popularity helps quite a bit but it still takes a few tries to nail a good route down.

    Sometimes the popularity will include paths not very suitable for road bikes, or huge busy roundabouts etc.

    If you end up with a good route, I would be interested to see it too !
