R200

Passing through Delamere Forest to Helsby, then a long flat ride through wonderful Cheshire countryside to Waverton, by Beeston Castle and Bunbury to Eccleshall. The return is through the picturesque village of Maer, and (a change for 2019) to Middlewich. Although a bit more bumpy there are no big climbs, so this ride is suitable for 'fixed' bikes.

eBrevetThis Perm can be ridden with the eBrevet. The start is from the petrol station at Dean Row, with parking available in a nearby layby. This ride shows you the Cheshire countryside at its best, with some lovely quiet lanes and no big climbs, although it's by no means absolutely flat.

The first part takes you through Knutsford and Great Budworth before climbing over the low-lying Delamere hills on the way to Helsby. On a clear day you get a great view over the Mersey marshes over towards Liverpool and the Welsh mountains. Then it's flat all the way through some lovely traditional Cheshire countryside with some fine views of Beeston castle, via Waverton and Bunbury.

The route revison in 2019 was undertaken in response to changes to roads and controls since the Perm was first set up. A busy crossing of the A556 is now avoided, as is M6 junction 17. All controls have 24/7 options.
