Stockport – Bramhall Leisure Centre to Jodrell Bank – 40 Mile Bike Ride (Guided Ride)

Take a wonderful meander through the quiet country lanes of Cheshire. The route wanders through quaint villages, tree-lined roads and the gorgeous vista that are the plains of Cheshire

Starting at Bramhall Leisure Centre and passing the village centre you are soon into the country lanes, soon finding the quietest roads towards Over Alderley. From there the route follows the National Cycling Route 70 to Marton, home of a 1200 year old Oak tree, before reaching a potential stopping point, Jodrell Bank café. The Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics at the University of Manchester is home to the Lovell Telescope, the third largest steerable radio telescope in the world.

After a refreshment stop the ride continues North West, passing by open farmlands and the quaint village of Marthall before winding our way to affluent Alderley Edge. The National trust owned Alderley Edge is named after the high ground separating Cheshire and Derbyshire. From Alderley Edge you cycle east back towards Mottram St Andrews, re-joining the route back via Woodford and the site of the Woodford Aerodrome which was the original home of the Vulcan Bomber.

Places are limited so please book online.
