Perms are back from 1st August after the Covid-19 pause. Just be aware that controls and cafes might be somewhat restricted, and any updates on their availability would be appreciated.

Please also note some new Perms starting from Uppermill, including the Goolish 200, Oat Cuisine 200, See Dee 200, Trough 200, Wigley 200, and WyldeFyre 200.

A tour of the Meres of Cheshire and Shropshire. The start is from the 24/7 petrol station at Dean Row, with parking available in a nearby layby. .

This is the permanent version of the calendar event, which is normally run in winter, so here is a chance to ride it again perhaps in better weather. In fact, if you pick a good day to ride (and it's a Perm, why would you pick a bad day?) you could buy a sandwich at Ellesmere petrol station and find a bench beside The Mere for a perfect alfresco lunch.

The route passes the many Meres of Cheshire and Shropshire (Mere, Budworth Mere, Hatchmere, Delamere, Oakmere, Newton Mere, Blake Mere, Ellesmere, White Mere, and Colemere). This is excellent cycling countryside with lots of quiet lanes. Although not a hilly ride, these are numerous undulations, but the route is probably still fine for those who insist on riding fixed.

The 2019 revision has reduced the number of controls, so you now have 24/7 options at all controls.
