Celebrate Car Free Day with a...

Glossop and Longdendale critical mass bike ride

Friday 14th Sept - 5.30pm @ Glossop Train Station in the High Peak

Say YES! to bikes NO! to a waste of money on a bypass

We're staging a Critical Mass bike ride to demonstrate that bikes and people should be catered for on our roads, not just cars and traffic. We'll be setting off from Glossop Train station at 5.30pm and will be riding out to Swallow's Wood near Tintwistle, where we'll stop at a local pub. The wood is threatened by a new bypass they are planning to build between Mottram and Tintwistle.

The route is fairly flat and about 4 miles in total. It's suitable for riders of all types. Wear bright clothing and bring whistles. Our aim is not to stop traffic but to make the presence of bikes on the roads more visible so please be aware of other traffic and road users.

4 easy miles to the Bull's Head in Tintwistle (SK13 1JY)
