The iconic Cheshire Cat was one of the first major Sportives and remains one of the must do events in the UK cycling calendar, great routes, fantastic feed stations, the classic Mow Cop all at the Velo29 great price!
Setting off this year from the Crewe Alexandra Football Club, you will soon find yourself out of Crewe winding your way along the quiet Cheshire roads. We offer a route for all abilities of rider.
The short route is perfect for novice riders; at 51 miles it’s still a challenge but doesn’t face the killer climb up Mow Cop, gently rolling around the quiet lanes of Cheshire.
The medium and long routes take on the challenging killer mile of Mow Cop itself, showing the true grimace of the Cheshire Cat itself! The medium route at nearly 80 miles has all the climbs of the longer 108mile challenge with the option of saving those tired legs the last 28 miles of Cheshire Countryside and the beautiful Delamere Forest, Cheshire’s largest woodland.
All routes finish back at Crewe Alexandra Football Club where riders will enjoy a FREE sausage bun and buy yourself a World Famous Beast Burger! What’s not to love about this challenge. Can you take on the Cheshire Cat and succeed!
