Cycling from Rochdale, our route goes to Bury where we join in with the 'Walter Pilkiington' Audax. From there it goes through Ainsworth, Egerton, Belmont, Tockholes, Lower Darwen, over Blackburn Moor to Hasligden, and through Edenfield to 'Owd Betts' pub for the sportif finish where we usually have a quick pint before returning to Rochdale. It's about 55 miles.
