I was determined today to make the big push through to Marple and extend the route that I’d worked on a few weeks ago by crossing over the Goyt and pushing the exploration a bit further. It worked a treat and actually there was only a mile or so of trail before it linked into some trails that I’d ridden with Neil Mottershead last year when he lived in the area.
Once in Marple, I admit that I didn’t make the final push through to the Roman Lakes on this ride. I really didn’t have time, but I did do quite a big section of the Middlewood Way, which opens up the option of extending this route all the way to Macclesfield which would make for a near 50 mile round trip as a future option.
