Brewery ride – ramsbottom
At the end of the STW rossy ride there was talk of riding from the Irwell brewery in Rambottom but heading the opposite way to the turbines are people still wanting to do this?Posted 6 years ago
I have a route in mind – not to long or difficult with potential stings in the tail depending on if people want to take them
Was thinking of 29 jan or 5th feb
I can do the 29th. HTN is indeed on the 4th. And everyone knows that if you’re on here regularly and live in the north west, then HTN is compulsory! Otherwise Harry the spider goes to work on you with a pair of pliers and a blowtorch! 😯
Or does he come round dressed only in a thong and a feather boa, and tickle you to death with a ken Dodd tickling stick?
It one or the other.Posted 6 years ago
Bump for the bored IT workers
Who’s up for this then? We could do a route up the rake > pilgrims cross > over Holcombe moor > pickup the Witton Weavers to Darwen > loop over Darwen Moor with some … ahem… “cheeky”* stuff, then a loop back via entwistle, back over Holcombe > finishing with the descent through Buckden woods for a well earned pint in the brewery
Was that what you were thinking justme?

I think we can safely bank on it being pretty wet. The route I’m thinking its not too bad. It’ll be a bog-fest over Holcombe Moor and some sludge-swimming on some points over towards Darwen. But other than that we should be ok really. Its surfaced of sorts. Well… we may not sink without trace 😀Posted 6 years agomr potatoheadMember
The general paln was to head through Nuttall park to Summerseat ,round the back of Turton Tower to Cadshaw woods , back along the bridleway ,through the cattery to the strawberry duck , round the res, up Crawthorne Rd , round the bridleway down to the stream and back around moor road to the top of robin hoods, down into irwell vale and along the lines back into rammy .There may be some variations depending on conditions etcPosted 6 years ago
Pick a date soonest and let me know so I can try and book babysitters. I’m also up for a full on sesh in the brewery followed by a slow pootle home if we can get there with a bit of time to spare. Failing that how about a few in the Hare and Hounds ?
G, Sorry I didnt call you back over xmas… had a bit of an emergency with the kids.Posted 6 years ago
Isn’t it compulsory to have to have a video, posted on here, of someone failing catastrophicly to clean the steps of DOOM. With pictures of the resulting carnage.
Lowey – there’s a spare room here if you get too… Ahem… Wobbly. If we’re feeling up for it we could do the brewery > the Major > the Fusilier > the H & H? Just a thought! actually that’s pretty dangerous! There’s a bike shop across the road and I’ll just have been paid. That’s never going to end well! 😳Posted 6 years ago
The ever-so-slightly-slippy steps of DOOOOOOOOOM
and what they did to Plumbers front wheel first time out
What you can’t see from the vid is that there’s no run-out at the bottom, just a narrow bridge over the river, at a weird angle. Its very off-putting as you can’t carry any speed or you’ll be going over the fence, then face-first into the water from a fair height!Posted 6 years ago
Steps of Doom, aka Jacobs Ladder down into Nuttall Park. They aren’t really on route – a short detour would solve that – but don’t worry I have some very steep muddy, techy singletrack to entertain the David Bailey’s amongst us. lowey you have had a taster in the summer, its wet now!!
