There is a long-term road closure in place as part of the Congleton Bypass contruction work. Sandy Lane can be bypassed, using Blackfirs Lane and Box Lane - see the route sheet. The GPX files have NOT been amended as Sandy Lane is expected to be back in use in due course.

Setting out from Dean Row (between Stockport and Wilmslow) you are soon into the Cheshire countryside, passing Peover Hall and Hassal on the way to Alsager (Old Hall Cafe if you are ready for a stop). Next is Audlem , where the Priest House cafe always has a warm welcome for cyclists.

The route then takes you somewhere near the Secret Bunker (don't tell anyone) on the way to Waverton. The Ice Cream Farm at Newton is just yards from the route if you fancy anther cafe stop.

The return to Dean Row uses the bridleway and ford at Swettenham (although the foot bridge here is by far the best bet).

The route was revised route in 2019 resulting in a reduction on the number of controls, all of which are now available over 24 hours, giving greater flexibility in choice of where and when to start, as you can start/finish at any of the controls.
