This is not an OCC ride but may be of interest to members. I will not be there.

... on the Mills n Moors Series we connect bridleways, singletrack and minor lanes to take you and your bike into wooded valleys and across the Pennine moors. Each bike route is circular and covers fast flowing gravel, cobbles, grass and tarmac. The Series is a way of exploring out of the way places. We use public rights of way and whilst 90% of the trail are in good condition there will be mud, puddles, steep and rough sections of trail where you might have to push your bike, stream crossings and of course ruts / rocks as it's the north of England.

Meet us at the start line for a cup of tea / coffee and home made flapjack, pick up your embroidered cloth badge and head off. There is no ‘mass start’. Any one of the following bikes would get you around the route: Gravel bike / Cyclocross bike / Mountain bike / E-bike. The terrain is not suitable for road bikes. We recommend tyres of 40mm upwards.
