I've finally decided to cycle into work from Rochdale to Manchester, a total of 16 miles. Probably just a couple of times a week to begin with, but I am struggling with what route to take. Are there any good sites on the internet that give you good routes, but don't just send you along canal banks. Alternatively, does anybody on this forum cycle the above route already? And are therefore able to tell me the best, and safest way into the land of Mancunia?? Any help would be gratefully received.
