Wednesday March 4th (C ride)

Start:- Bache (Morrison’s bike racks)

Leaving 10:45 - sign in earlier

Lunch: Tarvin Sands Cafe

Leader: Steve

Leaving Bache, we cycle through Upton, across the A41, to Picton Gorse and Mickle Trafford, picking up the Cheshire Cycleway (NCR70) and taking us onto the A56 for 2 miles. Just after Morley Bridge we turn right, going past Manley Mere and up a hill to Mouldsworth and Woodside. Leaving the Cheshire Cycleway, we turn right and head down through Kelsall and then right to Oscroft and Tarvin Sands. Arriving at the A54 we turn right, using the side path and cycle 300 m to the Tarvin Sands café.

Distance 17 miles.

Leaving the café, we head back to the junction and turn right to Great Barrow, then right onto the A51 (cycle track), first right to Guilden Sutton and back along the Greenway to Bache.

Distance 8 miles.

Total: 25 miles, 240m elevation Route here:- Steve’s ride gpx or Strava link

Just might be an option of the extra 4-5 miles to Hatchmere and back through Delamere via the visitor centre, but this involves about 1 MILE OFF-ROAD.

A lot depends on the weather!

Most bikes are suitable, although very narrow tyres can be quite uncomfortable on paths such as the Wirral Way. All we ask is that your bike is safe, roadworthy and you carry a puncture repair kit and spare inner tube (a much quicker fix) - but don't worry someone will always be happy to help to assist you if required.  

You will not be required to become a member for your first couple of rides.
