Bogtrotters, circa 1989

Several South Manchester cyclists formed the off-road Bogtrotters group, which organised rough-stuff rides in the Peaks. This was before mountain biking became the norm for off-road riding, and many members rode sturdy touring bikes with dropped handlebars. The photos below were taken on a ride from Hayfield to Edale, via Jacob’s Ladder, around 1989.

Can you spot anyone you recognise? These pictures have also been added to a Historic Photos album.
