The Half Manc is a tough challenge for the fit occasional rider. This route is not a flat procession, but an achievable challenge, which you will enjoy.  The Half Manc is 62 miles / 100km long and shares the first 50 Miles of the Full Manc Route. The Half Manc also starts and finishes at the David Lloyd Manchester North Club.  It takes an anti-clockwise circuit of Greater Manchester and has around 4500 ft of climbing to tackle. The Tour de Manc is not all about the fastest and this is not a race.

For those participating in RideLondon 46* this would be the perfect opportunity to put your training to the test and practice doing a ride of considerable length.

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 head towards Tameside and climb over towards Saddleworth, passing through Uppermill. Heading over some testy climbs, you will make your way over to Newhey, Milnrow and past Rochdale. Next is Owd Betts climb before you descend through the Ashworth Valley.
