- Bolton One Community Leisure Centre Moor Lane BL3 5BN
- Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
- 3 hours 20 mins (2 hours 40 mins cycling)
- Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.

Challenging rides on the road for adults only
If you’ve been riding a road bike for a while, and perhaps been thinking about joining a cycling club, these rides – brand new for 2012 – are for you. The prospect of a speedy pace over twenty to fifty miles, and the strong likelihood of some hills thrown in along the way, means our Ride Strong Plus rides are not for the faint-hearted.
Join us for an epic ride starting from Bolton's new flagship sports venue, Bolton One. A climbers dream with over 1800ft of total ascent, reaching a high point of 1056ft above sea level. Don't forget to look behind you as you climb from Rivington to Belmont or you will miss the spectacular panoramic view, with the Fylde Coast, Blackpool Tower and the Welsh Mountains all visible on a clear day. As we start the return leg there is the reward of a long steady descent back to Bolton.
If you've already tried one of our Ride Strong Plus rides and you're ready for the next challenge, why not try a British Cycling Sportive?
