North Cheshire Riders

Laureen's Ride

 

 

 

This  easy to follow 56km ride in the green heart of East Cheshire, ideal for first time long distance riders with friends or family on bicycles, opens in May 2012.

It follows quiet lanes, bridleways and byways and can be ridden as two separate loops, the ‘Cheshire Cheese’ to the south, 27km and the northern ‘Heritage’ loop 29km or as a long distance ride over two or three days using the accommodation listed. This is the first long distance route specially designed for ‘horse and bike’ combinations but the route is outstanding for horses, cyclists and walkers. There are few hills to climb and lush scenery to enjoy. Signposting, plus maps and route guides mean you don’t have to worry about losing your way.
 

The Southern “Cheshire Cheese” loop passes through pretty countryside with the green hedged fields and shady trees created for Cheshire dairy cattle. You will still see dairy herds from the route but nowadays many of these acres are used for polo; the magnificent estates of sixteenth century Peover Hall used by General Patton in WW2, Colshaw Hall and New Hall. Some of the tracks are even older such as Booth Bed Lane, a Salter’s Way. This loop is used as a pleasure ride by Sport Endurance every May and in August, from 2011, by Cheshire EGB. These rides are open to all. Why not come along for a taster?
