The Perm version of a popular Calendar ride.

It's a one hundred mile exploration of deepest Cheshire, with a ride through Tatton park - watch out for the deer. We then head through the north of the county of Cheshire, famous for its cheese, so expect to see cows. There is a first cafe stop at Meadow Lee Farm in Mickle Trafford.

Then you will ride right through the middle of Chester on the Greenway, an excellent off-road route to reach Hawarden over the border into Wales. You then ride back along side the River Dee to Garden City and Sealand.

The return involves going through the middle of Chester Zoo, so you should catch a glimpse of several non-indigenous species, such as camel or elephant. You later ride through Delamere Forest, which is usually glorious whatever the time of year.

A final stop at Great Budworth's Icecream Farm, with a chance of tea and cake, should set you up for the run in back to Poynton).
