I am doing the Tour de Manc tomorrow and am staying overnight in Bury so I can be at the event nice and early on Sunday morning.
I arrived at the hotel too early for my room so was able to use the gym changing rooms to get into my cycling gear and so I could have a quick spin of the legs to check out the event location for tomorrow.
After that I realised Heaton Park was very close by and I’d never been so rode over and had a nice ice cream by the big house at the top of the hill.
Then it was an easy ride via some quieter suburban streets back to my hotel.
