    I'm up in Warrington in a few weeks time and was thinking of tackling part of the route. Does anyone have a route map they could point me to.
    Thanks

    Assuming it's the same route as last year try the website at www.kilotogo.com/cheshirecat.htm seems to have various pages to look at. Just click onto map of route. Doesn't look very clear though,but might give you a rough idea.Hope it helps.

    or click on Ride Detail and get a clearer version of the map and a full route card for both rides?

    the longer route takes in mow cop (verrrrrrrrrrrrry nasty)

    the shorter route has a nasty ramp up to the feeding zone and the wind in your face across the cheshire plain.
     
  5. I didn't do the event this year as much of it is my normal training routes and I'm unwilling to pay to ride the roads I do every few weeks anyway
    (- it's different doing an event somewhere new)

    But a friend was keen to do it and to recce it first, so we rode the route out from Warrington rather than Knutsford, in two halves on two separate weekends - each was a decent distance including the out-and-back to get onto the route.

    The routesheets on the Kilotogo website were easy to follow, although of course I knew most of the roads, but not necessarily their names...

    Thanks
    I most likely tackle the northan route riding out from Warrington.
