This is the Perm version of the
Calendar ride. You can ride it using the
or using traditional PoPs, such as collecting till receipts. The Perm can be ridden on any date
except 24th March 2024
where it clashes with the Calendar version of this ride.
Just why Great Budworth and Little Budworth are so far apart (about 19km as the Audaxer cycles) is a bit of a mystery.
Great Budworth may be a picturesque village but it has the added feature of a cafe at the Icecream Farm, a place we've visited on a number of Peak Audax events. Choose a start time and ride direction carefully as the cafe tends to open from 12-5pm, and may close earlier than that if the weather is bad. But if the weather is bad, why would you be riding a Perm?
Little Budworth is small (as the name might suggest) and quiet (that is unless there is racing going on at nearby Oulton Park).
The ride goes past the Anderton Boat Lift, which is one of the Seven Wonders of the Eaterways, so is worth a look.
The ride also passes the site of Whitegate Station, which has a useful cafe.
