A revised route for 2019, with a new control at Penkridge allowing greater flexibility of ride times and removing a short stretch of the busy A49. The start is still from Dean Row (between Stockport and Wilmslow) with a 24/7 petrol station and an excellent Robinson's Pub. Parking is available in a nearby layby.
The permanent version of the calendar event, which is normally run in January or February so here's a chance to ride it in decent weather.
From Dean Row, the route takes you past excellent cafes at Radway Green, Newport and Audlem. No big climbs and lots of pleasant lanes in Cheshire and Staffordshire.
