R300

One of two 300s to enable you to complete a Wigley Super Randonneur Perm Series, the other being the Plains 300 . This route has been amended slightly and now visits Shawbirch instead of Wem, as otherwise the two rides shared some common roads between Montgomery and Wem. The start location has also been moved to Poynton, where there is more suitable parking for a long Perm.

eBrevet This Perm can be ridden with the eBrevet.

The ride heads west over undulating Cheshire roads to Helsby. From Helsby the route turns southbound through Waverton, then diverts from the Eccleshall route to take in Saighton and Holt. You will ride past Bangor on Dee race course, so it might be worth while checking their race dates as I recommend avoiding those.

At Gobowen you could just call in at the Co-op near the Railway station for a snack, but Betty's Cafe, just before Whittington at Derwyn College and Hospital, is recommended as a stop.

After Gobowen, there are some delightful Shropshire lanes as you skirt the spectacular scenery around Criggion to reach Montgomery. You could even call in at the Knockin Shop.

After a cafe stop at Montgomery, the new route heads towards Minsterley and Pontesbury to find a 24 hour garage at Shawbirch, before passing through Newport to reach Eccleshall.

From Eccleshall, the final north-bound leg goes through Haslington, Sandbach and Holmes Chapel to finish at Poynton.
