- Starting Point & Postcode
- Poynton Civic Centre car park Opposite entrance to Bulkeley Road, off Park Lane SK12 1RB
- Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
- 2 hours 45 mins (2 hours 5 mins cycling)
- Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.

As part of our winter riding programme we have scheduled a number of guided rides near you which are all about getting the best out of winter riding. This route is perfect for getting out on the bike and warming up on a fresh winters morning! Everybody who books on and attends the ride will receive a FREE Great Britain Cycling Team water bottle.
You don’t have to be the next Bradley Wiggins, but you’ll need to know your way around a bike and be fairly fit to take part in our Challenging rides. If you’re comfortable riding with other people and fancy a fresh challenge, these rides are perfect for you. They start at around twenty miles long, and are paced at between 11 and 12 miles an hour.
Starting in the great little town of Poynton we 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 ride 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 ride is not for the faint of heart!
