This is a mainly flat, mainly off-road ride with lovely views and interesting places. It is suitable for a mountain bike or sturdy hybrid. This is a slightly longer, slightly less easy ride than my normal Delamere Forest bike ride, but only a little bit! I would consider this ride then next step up, but you don't need any mountain bike skills or anything like that. We will just take it steady if you don't cycle much but still want to give it a try!
We start by taking a trip across the fields on a restricted path, past the quarry and onto a small hill with a wonderful view over Winnington way. We reach the main road at Sandiway, and follow the road to Cuddington where we join the Whitegate Way for a lovely long cycle along a flattish, and well marked path that takes us all the way to the salt mine at Winsford. We have to get off out bikes at the now derelict Whitegate Station as they are repairing the bridge. They have added some steps for us to carry our bikes the short walk back onto the main path.
At Winsford, we cycle along the river to the lock, to the blue bridge and back to Hartford. There will be vistas, flowers, birds and wildlife! So many different parts of beautiful Cheshire to see!
if riders would like to, we can stop at Relish for a tea and cake at the end, or ride straight back to the station. The choice is yours! :-)
All the usual Breeze terms and conditions apply. Please check your bike before you leave home. Please wear suitable clothing for our variable Spring weather. Don't forget to bring a water bottle or drink. Most important of all - please bring your lovely smile!! :-)
We will do a bike check and introduction at 9:45 so that we can set off on time.
I look forward to leading you on this fabulous ride!
