Route Description

Starting at Canute Place we Following round along the Heath and keeping to the route we come to the junction with the A556 with the Windmill Inn opposite. Care needs to be taken crossing the busy road. Back to quieter back roads into Pickmere turning at the Red Lion and follow the road to Great Budworth. Budworth is one of Cheshire's finest villages with cobbled streets, quaint houses and the George and Dragon serving excellent food and hospitality. Save some space as not far away is the Ice Cream Farm on the outskirts of Great Budworth.

Continuing through Antrobus, over the M56 (the Ebikes are not quite fast enough to join the M56) and continue along the back roads through Stretton and onto Grapenhall with a small diversion to see the locks on the Manchester Ship Canal. Back on the route and it is a short ride to Thelwall (M6 viaduct fame) and on into Lymm. Lymm is another picturesque village with cross, stocks, canal, pubs and caf├ęs.

Time to head for home crossing the M56 again and and through High Legh passing over the M6 then back into Knutsford. Then the well earned cup of tea, or something stronger. There is no shortage of choice in Knutsford.
