Macclesfield residents will have fond memories of this popular cycling fundraiser.
Ride around the beautiful Cheshire Plain with its quiet hedgerow lined lanes, and help support our official charity partner, Just Drop In. Not only will you cycle parts of the Cheshire countryside, but we’ll also take you on a well-rounded tour of the area, with an opportunity to ride happily in the knowledge that your miles will be making a difference.
Starting from Macclesfield Leisure Centre, you’ll ride west towards Jodrell Bank, with its huge satellite dish probing the skies. From here, head north towards the feed station at Great Warford Baptist Church.
Riders following the shorter 30 mile route will take a northerly heading towards Alderley Edge and Mottram St Andrew before returning to the leisure centre where the welcome of the finish line awaits. Long route 60 mile riders continue west, following quiet Cheshire lanes towards Tatton Park taking in views as you ride through the parkland. From here it’s over the M6 motorway before heading south towards Byley where the route turns for home heading northeast back towards The feed station for another refreshment stop and the final push back to Macclesfield to collect your t-shirt and finishers goodies and all for a good cause.
