The Full Manc starts and finishes at the David Lloyd Manchester North Club. It is just over 103 miles long, tours all 10 boroughs of Greater Manchester in an anti-clockwise direction and has around 8700 ft. of climbing to test yourselves on.
For those participating in RideLondon 100* this would be the perfect opportunity to put your training to the test and practice doing a 100 mile ride.
What is the Tour De Manc Route?
The route heads out on a flat, mainly downhill route, past Heaton Park, towards Agecroft, through Salford, past Old Trafford and Chorlton to Stockport. Then the course gently rises through Stockport to Marple and starts climbing at Marple Bridge. After a “warm up” climb, you tackle the short but steep Werneth low climb, affording you a sensational view of Manchester and a panorama of the hills to the North East and the North – enjoy that view!
You will make your way over to Newhey, Milnrow and through Rochdale. First you climb Owd Betts, then up to Holcombe before a tough climbing route to Belmont. You the proceed towards Bury and just to add that little sting to the tail, you have the Heap Bridge climb which takes you to within a few miles from the finish.
About Prevent Breast Cancer
Prevent Breast Cancer is the only UK charity entirely dedicated to the prediction and prevention of breast cancer – we’re committed to freeing the world from the disease altogether.

And being situated at the only breast cancer prevention centre in the UK, we’re right at the front-line in the fight against the disease.
