After the Covid-19 lockdown, certain Perms are back from 1st August. However, you should still observe any restrictions about carrying out group activities. No cycling to Barnard Castle!
Our traditional cafes and shops might not all still be available. Please support those that are, but you should carry sufficient supplies in case they are not. Please pass any updates about controls to the Organiser.
The Cheshire bits of the Peak District with climbs to Cleulow, Mow Cop and encroaching briefly into Staffordshire for the Roaches before a return to Cheshire for Wildboarclough and the return to Marple. Formerly known as Mow Cop Perm but now hillier!
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.
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.
