Special Rides

Special/novelty rides coming up (see below)
Special or novelty rides are organised throughout the summer riding season to provide something different.  Rides typically explore areas further afield or include a different riding experience.  Special rides tend to be very popular so members are advised to register their interest online as soon as possible after registration opens.  Entry to rides is normally closed when numbers reach 12 riders.

Special/novelty rides 

April 11th
If you are fed up with riding down the same old lanes, then this Moderate ride will offer miles of lanes anew. I rode essentially this same route with Ivan and John W recently, and it was very pleasant in early Feb so should be magnificent in April.

Starting in Market Drayton and exiting via Salisbury Hill, the route runs south-easterly through long lanes (old roman roads) and small villages. At 26 miles, the Hartley Arms in Wheaton Aston is our lunch venue. After lunch, there is just 22 miles of more new lanes to explore on our way back to Market Drayton via Elephant Grass valley. Route is available at https://www.plotaroute.com/route/766536 ( but it maybe finessed!). There is also an example of a Brisk 63miler at www.plotaroute.com/route/767195 with the same lunch venue.

Current plan is to park in Morrisons Supermarket and use their cafe at 1000 for a 1030 start. Morrisons is best approached by taking the A53 Northerly bypass, then turning South into the town on the A529. Market Drayton is about 35 miles down the A41 from Chester.
