Enjoy a cycle ride through Marple, just to the east of Stockport in Greater Manchester.
Distance: 6.1 miles
Home to some of the greatest engineering feats of our canal network, it’s well worth taking a quick breather to marvel Marple Locks, one of the steepest flights in the country.
Other route highlights include a river crossing and an abandoned chapel – and there are plenty of lovely places to stop for a bite to eat in Marple if you’re feeling peckish.
British Cycling have more about this route, and the other great canal rides, on their website.
