Rideouts: Whitham's 3 of the Best (part 2)

Route 2. Manchester / Sheffield


Glossop A57



Langsett A616

This is the Strines Pass. It's difficult to find, this. Get your map out and find Glossop, east of Manchester. Now go down the A57, past Snake Pass (another lovely road) and keep going to the Ladybower Reservoir. The road goes right down the A6013, but ignore that and carry on down the 57.

About a mile or so down this road, on your map you'll see an un-nmaed road in basically a series of un-named roads, which head towards Langsett. Basically, the Strines is the west-most one of these. It's lovely. You've got a wonderful river crossing and it really is one of the best little B-roads you can get.

There's also a great little pub there called The Shrines Inn, where you can sit, eat and chat and watch the other bikes go past. The road itself goes on for a few miles, going past Midhopestones and ending near Langsett on the A616. Mega.
