The permanent version of the calendar event, normally run in November so a chance to ride it again perhaps in better weather. Visit the legendary cyclist's cafe using some surprisingly quiet lanes skirting Warrington, Chester, Wrexham and Crewe.

The start is from the petrol station at Dean Row, before heading through Wilmslow to pass under the airport runway using the cyclist's tunnels. Quiet lanes take you Rostherne, High Legh and Stretton with its Young Offenders' Unit. The stretch through Frodsham and Helsby uses the A56 but the presense of the nearby motorway should keep the roads fairly quiet.

After a stop at Eureka cyclists' cafe (open Wednesdays and Friday-Sunday) you skirt the west side of Chester, crossing into Wales using the Dee footbridge at Saltney.

After re-crossing the Dee at the narrow bridge into Bangor-ys-y-coed there are more pleasant Cheshire lanes through Tilston and Shocklach on the way to the cafe at Newton Icecream Farm. Then make your way to Astbury, if you are fast enough the Garden Centre cafe might still be open. Return to Dean Row through the Dane Valley through Chelford.
