R200

entry This Perm can be ridden with the eBrevet. The Perm can be ridden on any date except 24th March 2024 where it clashes with the Chirk 200 Calendar version of this ride.

This is a long standing and popular spring classic. Start from Poynton on pleasant lanes through Bollington, Prestbury and Siddington. The Craft Centre Cafe at Poole is no longer available to us, but there is a useful early cafe (if you need it) at Church Minshull Marina.

The ride then crosses Cheshire on roads familiar with anyone who has ridden the Calendar version of this ride over the last 25 years, but we divert after Overton to take in the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, a World Heritage Site.

After a welcome pause at the Caffe Wylfa in Chirk, the return is through Overton. I've re-routed from an 'agricultural' lane near Holly Bush, which is now in a dreadful condition, before continuing through Shocklach and Tilston to Tarporley control.

The final leg uses the popular 'Winsford bypass', a short off-road stretch to cross the River Weaver in Vale Royal.
