One of my favourite climbs near Manchester, Pott Shrigley aka Brickworks is a gradual and scenic climb on the edge of the Peaks. Once you reach the top, you'll want to explore all the roads ahead. Once you're out of the city and into the Peaks you get an overwhelming sense of clarity as the fresh air hits. It really isworth the initial navigating out of the city. There are various side roads that are tempting to explore just try not to make the same mistake I did by adding on unnecessary climbs (unless you're into that sorta thing).
