    An hour up the motorway - Lake district - ride Hardnott pass

    I ride out from Skem (best thing to do with it ) and ride circuits via Parbold, stoney lane etc
    I grew up as a kid idolising those hero's in the Tour de France, Indurain and everyone like that. It was almost a childhood dream to ride the Tour de France. The last 2 years my childhood dream which became a reality has been pissed all over by certain members of the peloton. - Bradley Wiggins 27th July 2007.

    For road - there are some very quiet and idyllic lanes in south Cheshire. Specifically west of Nantwich and around Beeston castle area. Some of the roads are closed for bridge repair but up to cycles (bliss!). Also some great pubs.
    We need a bigger boat.

    I don't think the o.p is coming back, but anyway, Glossup to Sheffield on Snake pass is a fine ride and challenging.
