This Perm can be ridden with the eBrevet. The ride starts and finishes in Dean Row, and nips over the border to Britain's newest city at St Asaph. The first leg involves an easy crossing of Cheshire through Delamere Forest, from where it's all down hill to Mickle Trafford. The Cheshire Greenway takes you through the centre of Chester on a traffic-free but well engineered cycle path.
Traffic-free cycling through Chester City Centre
After a first cafe stop in Shotton, you encounter the first main climb of the day, out from Flint up to Halkyn Mountain. Despite the name, this 'mountain' is only 263m high from where there are great views of Liverpool and the Wirral.
Descend to St Asaph and up the Clwyd valley to Denbigh. The cimb back over the Clwydian Hills then starts in earnest with a climb over Moel Arthur at 345m before returning to Shotton and back onto the Chester Greenway.
Return to Dean Row through Weaverham and Lower Peover.
