The Mulberry Tree
This is probably the easiest way to the Wizard, starting with a spin up Broad Lane and then heading towards Pickmere, Plumley and Ollerton before tackling Artists Lane up to the Cafe (25 miles in).
After the break we’ll have an exhilarating run down into Alderley Edge (to admire the Porsches) and then head back via Mobberley, Ashley and Swineyard..
It’s 47 miles with a total of 1700 ft of climbing.

The Active ride is paced between 14-16mph. We typically ride at around 15 mph 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.
We meet at the Mulberry Tree, Stockton Heath, WA4 2AF. Please arrive by 08:20 for a prompt 08:30 start. Bikes MUST be in good working order and you MUST have a helmet. You need to carry a spare inner tube and/or puncture repair kit and when necessary you should also have lights. You should also bring enough to drink (minimum one full bottle) and snacks/gels etc appropriate for the length of the ride.
- Please keep pavements clear at meeting points, be respectful of pedestrians.
- 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 ride maximum two abreast – not four! – and on the left hand side of the road – safety first!
- 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.
