Route guide available exclusively for supporters. Get access here.

Crest awe-inspiring Peak District summits and descend beautiful quiet lanes on a mountainous ride of climbing endurance around Cheshire’s wilder side. Ticking off the Blaze Hill and Lamaload climbs of the Cheshire Cycleway, a diversion out from the isolated Wildboarclough to Wincle rewards with stunning ridge views.
