This unlikely title announces a group of Mountain Bikers, a tough but popular sport in this hilly district. We meet most Sunday mornings, usually at the crack of dawn outside the The Turner’s (New Con Club, Turners Arms). We spend several weekends a year in such places as the Lake District, Wales and the Yorkshire Dales. Each year we also take a foreign trip, the Costa Del Sol being a popular destination.
Meetings every Tuesday in the The Turners, Ingersley Road, Bollington, from 8.30pm. The group organise trips to the UK and Europe. Local rideouts if it ever stops raining. Trackday events. Annual end of season and new season party nights. No membership fees, no committees, no agendas, just good uncomplicated friendship and biking fun.
Cheshire East Council operate a countryside Ranger Service and they have an office at Adlington Road, Bollington, beside the railway viaduct – better known today as the Middlewood Way. Enquiries can be made there about the Middlewood Way, Lindow Common (Wilmslow), Jackson’s Brickworks (Higher Poynton) and Poynton Coppice (Higher Poynton).
The Rangers provide very many outdoor events throughout the year across the east Cheshire countryside and at the leisure facilities belonging to the borough. Get a copy of their booklet Get Out! for full details of their excellent programme.

‘Walks for Health’ are short guided walks in Bollington and surrounding areas. Suitable for those who want a gentle walk and an opportunity to meet others. These are organised for the summer months and often take place in the lighter evenings.
The Wednesday walks are very popular. They vary in difficulty and length each week and so they have a ratings system to provide information on the difficulty of each one. Check the web site for the programme and details of the difficulty rating. They all meet at the Centre at 10am for 10:15am departure.
There are longer walks twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays, usually meet at the Centre at 10am for 10:15am departure. These Saturday walks are usually 8-12 miles in length, typically a bit shorter in winter.
Bollington organises a very popular Walking Festival each year in the last week or so of September, with walks to suit all standards, from short on the level stroles, to 10+ miles day long hikes over the hills.

- Guides are available from the Discovery Centre , and those available can be found on their books page;
- The Bridgend Centre provide a number of popular planned walks guides;
- Further suggested walks can be found in two walks guides where the walks begin and end at two local pubs – Walks from the Vale Inn, and Walks from the Poacher’s Inn. Available from the pubs;

The Harriers club has been re-established in 2017 as a result of our very active Town Mayor, Cllr Andy Langdon. For decades through the late 19th and early 20th centuries Bollington had a very active and successful Harriers club, and interest has escalated once again following re-newed interest in long distance and hill running. Andy has been especially committed by trekking up Kerridge hill to White Nancy 203 times during his Mayoral year (2017/18). 203 relates to the number of names of Bollington men who gave their lives in the two world wars.
An opportunity for 13-16 year olds to use the Adelphi Mill gym facilities in a supervised 1½ hour session. Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4pm and Saturdays at 11am.
