look on the tracks & trails bit theres quite a few places nearby a favourite of mine is lee quarry its just past rochdale n is quality! theres now a link route to another place called cragg quarry which in my opinion is just as good as lee so theres more than enough to do there u should check it out!

the link route isnt signposted tho tbh so id do ur homework before u go u can find maps/directions on google etc

im out in rochdale,

quite a lot of riding out this way. From Lee Quarry to Littleborough and then there is lots of secret tracks and spots that have been built which I am sure you will learn about once you are in the right circles.

here is a couple of photos of me riding littleborough on sat before the sun ran away.

and a few of some of the secret spots:

in short there is loads about it just takes time to get to know about a lot of the spots.
