The Mulberry Tree


An active step-up up route to the Snowdrop cafe at the Grasslands Garden Centre near Allowstock.  The route sets of though the houses of Stockton Heath up to Appleton Thorn and on through Wincham and Lostock to the cafe.  After the break we head north via the lanes, skirting Tatton Park and via High Legh to Swineyard.  The distance is around 40 miles with 1350 ft of ascent.

The Active ride is paced between 14-16 mph covering approximately 40-50 miles. We typically ride at around 15mph average and we would like to ask riders to be respectful of this for your own safety and the safety of the group. Suitable for road bikes only.

You can view details of the route here: Grasslands (31434374)

We meet at the Mulberry Tree, Stockton Heath, WA4 2AF and leave at 8:30AM prompt.
Bikes MUST be in good working order and you MUST have a helmet.  You need to carry a spare inner tube or puncture repair kit and when necessary you should also have lights.

General Rules:
– Please keep pavements clear at meeting points, be respectful of pedestrians.
– Riders must ride maximum two abreast – not four! – and on the left hand side of the road – safety first!
– We generally ride as a single group, unless we have 12 or more riders when we would split into 2 groups (assuming we have enough ride leaders to accommodate this)
– Riders must have someone they can phone in case of emergencies and mechanical failure – it is not the responsibility of the leaders to fix a bike – but they will help if they can.
