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.
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?
Comments from the 2011 Pleasure ride:
“Lovely country lanes and plenty of canter opportunities”. Terry Hobin
“It was a lovely ride through some nice countryside dotted with some rather fab looking houses and some nice canter opportunities!” Tamara Habberley
