- Walsden/Todmorden area?
It floods! River Calder has a habit of bursting its narrow high walled banks every time someone flushes their toilet.Posted 7 years ago
Has some great riding if you don’t mind steep hills to get to it.
It does have a bit of a “Last of the Summer Wine” vibe about the place.Don’t be surprised to see groups of men trundling down steep roads in bath tubs.stumpyjonSubscriber
Excellent riding from the doorstep, still close to Manchester, cheaper houses. Don’t forget Eastern Rossendale to, you don’t have to live in the centre of Bacup, some of the bits up the hills aren’t bad (too much effort for the scallies to leave the valley bottom).
Schools, bike like anywhere really, some good, some bad. The whole areas quite mixed to be honest, lot of terraced house but there’s also a lot of bigger properties as well. Personally I really like it here, way better than middle of a city but you’ve still got all that within easy distance. Just don’t ever expect to be considered a local, your grand fathers grand father needs to have been born here for you to be a true local.Posted 7 years agoelaine anneMember

singletrack magazine is written right here in sunny Todmorden..
prince charles has visited and now wears a badge saying ‘i luv Tod’ !
u can also hear guitars and drums up and down the valley so you may need earplugs… and finally…the rats are now the size of small babies !
he hee..apart from that : fantastic scenery and you wont be diapointed by cycling up to the pike then straight down the front ! sometimes you may need an airlift out by the local helichopper if you come a cropper on your mtb….. c you around…. i know these hills like the back of my hand..
