After last week’s new beginning ride, which saw us revise the traditional Allez Prestwich ride profile, this week we go in an opposite direction with our annual ‘easy’ day out to the cycling heaven that is the Cheshire Lanes. On Saturday 7th August, the route is a longer loop taking in some lovely quiet roads with a Stand Up café stop at the Trading Post in Goostrey. Principle towns we will pass through are Budworth, Pickmere, Plumley, Goostrey and Alderley Edge. 75 Miles, 2500ft. Starting and ending at the Manchester Velodrome. As this is a longer ride than usual, please allow more time when forecasting your time of return. To compensate a little, there is an earlier start time of 0800.
Meet details……Saturday 7th August.
