Oldham is a great place to be a biker. This historic textile town is situated between the rivers Irk and Medlock. Collectively, it houses over 233,000 people, a figure that was calculated in 2017!
We Buy Any Bike visit Oldham multiple times a week, and since this is the case, we thought we’d put this bikers guide together!
Motorcycle-Friendly Cafe’s & Hangouts
Situated on Turner Street in Ashton-Under-Lyme, The Junction Inn is owned by Robinson Brewery, and the hosts here are very welcoming towards bikers. Up until recently, this pub was the club house for the Wild Geese MCC!
Also located in Ashton-under-Lyme is The Station Hotel, a very biker-friendly pub who even has its own biker DJ! It is also a bonus if you like dogs because there is a ridgeback cross who lives here.
A great place to stop for a bite to eat when you’re on your travels! They have a huge menu of different things to eat… you’ll be spoilt for choice!

If you choose to take a ride out to Sunfield, not only will you be greeted with beautiful views of Saddleworth Moor, but you can also treat yourself to a bite to eat at the local pub, ‘The Diggle Hotel’ which is just a short walk away.
