You thought that the county of Cheshire was flat? This event will put you right as you explore the bits of the Peak District within the ancient county of Cheshire. (Actually, we do stray into Staffordshire from where there are some terrific views over the Cheshire Plain)
There are fine views of Cheshire to be had from Mow Cop
There are fine views of Cheshire to be had from Mow Cop

Starting from Marple, there's a fairly easy ride to Bollington, Kerridge and skirting Macclesfield to reach Cleulow with fine views over the flat bit of Cheshire towards Wales. After the first cafe stop at Astbury, you have the short but severe climb to Mow Cop to enter Staffordshire and the fine scenery of the Roches.

Return to Cheshire for the ride through Wildboarclough and the deer park in Lyme Park on your back to Marple. (This Perm was formerly known as the Mow Cop, one of Rob Kilby's events but now with even Mower climbing)
