This is an 'on road' circular which has Rivington Barn at exactly half way - good spot for sunday roast. There are some long uphill sections and some long downhill sections to compensate.

Great ride. Did this today in the glorious sunshine. A few tricky bits, steep climb at the side of the Black Dog and some undulating hills going over the top. Great through Rivington and then Horwich was a killer. Wouldn't like to do it the other way, much nicer starting at Bob Smythy's.
