Welcome to Manchester Chester Manchester Cyclosportive. We have three great routes  65 miles and 100 miles designed by experienced local club cyclists.
Starting at Poynton Leisure Centre the ride takes to riders across the Cheshire Plains on a circular route past Beeston Castle and back to Poynton. All three routes are relatively flat, there are some small hills and undulations but no big hills. Fabulous countryside and some very quiet roads especially around Delamere and Beeston Castle
