A repeat of January’s ride, as only the leader plus one turned up. We had to be careful in the snow and ice but it was a really good day out.
Meet at Chadkirk Country Estate Car Park (Free)

Vale Road off the A627. Nearest Post Code is SK6 3LE. StreetMap link as below.

Wednesday 15th Feb 2023, 10.00 for a 10.15AM departure.

Weather conditions on the day may change things but….

I plan to ride up to and along the Middlewood Way and into Lyme Park for coffee (other drinks are available) then up to the Bow Stones and along the Sponds Hill Ridge, drop down into Bollington for lunch at the Clarence Mill Cafe by the canal. Those that don’t fancy the ride UP and along the Sponds Hill Ridge can stay longer in Lyme Park and beat ‘us’ to Bollington along lanes etc.
I’ll provide instructions or a map.

From Bollington, I plan to return via the Middlewood Way to Higher Poynton, then via the canal to Marple and down the locks, over the Goyt Aqueduct and drop back down to Chadkirk from near Hyde Bank tunnel.

The total ride is about 27 miles but missing out the ‘Bow Stones and Sponds Ridge’ is a little shorter and a lot less strenuous. There is a good deal of flat riding on the Middlewood Way and on Canal Tow Path, which I know can be boring for some. Bring your lights but I don’t intend being out that late !
