Rivington Country Park
This lovely country park is on the edge of the West Penine Moors and makes for a fine afternoon's cycling with its reservoirs, woods and splendid scenery.
The ride is circular starting and finishing at Adlington train station and takes you through the nicest sections of the park.
To extend your exercise you can climb to the nearby Healey Nab for great views over the reservoir. On the Nab there are lots of footpaths and two colour coded mountain bike trails to try in the woodland area.
