Poynton Civic Centre car park
Opposite entrance to Bulkeley Road, off Park Lane
Starting in the great little town of Poynton you explore the amazing countryside and towns around the Peak District. You may never win the 'King of the Mountains' jersey, but if you can do this route you'll at least feel that you might have been a contender as it's a wonderful (but tough) ride over one of the Peak District's iconic climbs. Prepare for a real sense of achievement once you are at the top, and we're sure you'll agree it's well worth the effort for the views. After a few more climbs (thrown in for good measure) on the return journey, you'll be ready for a cup of tea and slice of cake back in Poynton. Please be aware that this route is not for the faint of heart!
