RECOMMENDED LOCATIONS

The famous parklands of South Manchester offer a wealth different landscapes, perfect for exploring during your Pashley bike hire experience...

FLETCHER MOSS PARK AND BOTANICAL GARDENS

Stenner Lane, Didsbury, Manchester M20 2RQ

One moment you'll be bumping down the cobbled hill from the park's tea shop, the next you'll be cycling alongside Friesian cows grazing on preserved ancient pasturelands...

... then joining a path along the rugged river bank, you'll pass the local team's rugby pitches before arriving back at the large span of grass and picnic benches which are in the central point of the park...

... in addition to all this is the beautifully maintained botanical gardens, often a hive of activity with photographers who come from afar...

... so why not join them, pack your camera in your carrier crate, and use the Japanese pond area as the perfect setting for your bicycle picnic-themed wedding proposal...

MARIE LOUISE GARDENS

Holme Road, Didsbury, Manchester M20 2UP

... so if you're looking for a lively backdrop to your baby shower or birthday gathering, this is a prime location...

... so why not make a pitstop on your bike hire tour, unload the afternoon tea goods from the picnic hamper basket and kick back to enjoy a quintessentially English afternoon during your Pashley adventure...
