A ride out to Dearnford and then exploring the lanes of South Cheshire


Today was forecast to be up to 17 degrees and sunny all day so I opted for full summer kit and my favourite Cycology bits. Was absolutely glorious and totally warm when riding. Makes a HUGE change from the tons of winter kit I have been wearing!

I was planning my usual Dearnford Lake 55 mile ride and so pulled up for the obligatory cake and coffee, sitting outside by the lake in the sun.


We’ve been looking at a development property near Marbury in Cheshire and it was not too far away. With such a lovely day it was an easy decision to change the rest of the ride and head up that way for a look and then to explore some new lanes afterwards.

I was soon up through Whitchurch and at the new property. Fab views from here to the north, literally overlooking the Peckforton hills and Beeston Castle.


I then planned to head off to Wrenbury and then Sound Heath and see where I went from there. I ended up to the NW of Nantwich before cutting through Nantwich to Crewe and then back home via Wybunbury, Audlem, Norton In Hales and Market Drayton.

A really fun day out on the bike, beautiful weather and quite a few new lanes explored. Best fun I’ve had on the bike since Gran Canaria!
