The permanent version of the Winter Solstice calendar event, a route deliberately chosen for its lack of climbing, so it makes a good ride for those riding 'fixed'. If it's a flat ride, with quiet lanes and the option of several welcoming cafes that you are after, this is a ride for you.

And if you've ridden the Winter Solstice and fancy something a little different, you can now ride this Perm in the opposite direction!

From the edge of Stockport, you head out over the Cheshire Plain to Davenham, crossing the Weaver to Whitegate and Beeston. You cross the Dee at Farndon to enter Wales at Holt before returning to England through Malpas and Whitchurch to Market Drayton.

Return to Stockport through Shavington Park to Tattenhall, then skirt Nantwich and Middlewich.
