Great ride out with mates to Delph diving club, chips and egg like mam used to make with loads of bread and butter washed down with hot sweet tea. Loads of bikes to admire every Tuesday I think. Clean and good value

I go here regularly to train. The facilities are excellent, the water clean and fresh and the course well-marked with buoys. There's a cafe for refreshments and changing rooms and showers. The changing rooms do need a coat of paint, and a clean, but the...More
