The Open Road
Once you’ve got your CBT certificate, you’ll want to take advantage of some of the great roads on Manchester’s doorstep. To the east is the Pennines and the Peak District, both of which are home to some of the best roads in the UK.
Heading directly east out of the city centre is the A628 - commonly known as the Woodhead - a wide, flowing A-road that connects Manchester to. It’s a busy road, used by lots of lorries, but offers great views across the Pennines and some of the many reservoirs of the area. If you want even better views, turn off the A628 onto the A6024 towards Holmfirth. This road winds uphill, and at the crest there’s a conveniently located car park with views stretching for miles. There’s usually an ice cream van in the warmer months, too!
If you’re looking for something a little twistier then head to Glossop, where you’ll be able to pick up the A57, otherwise known as Snake Pass. This road is well known throughout the UK, and as such is a popular destination for other motorists and cyclists. There are dozens of picturesque villages just off the A57 in the Peak District if you want to get off the beaten path.
To the west of Manchester you can head to the coast for a lovely chip dinner on the seafront. The roads aren’t as interesting, but everybody loves the seaside, don’t they?
