Audax Perms are back from 1st August, but only for Perms up to 200km. Longer events will return but at a later date when current restrictions are relaxed - watch this space for updates.

There will be an additional 300 Perm when Perms are fully back, as the Plains 300 will be launched.

One of two 300s to enab;e you to complete a Wigley Super Randonneur Perm Series, the other being the Plains 300.

This is an extension of the Eccleshall 200 which starts from Dean Row (near Stockport and Wilmslow) and heads west over undulating Cheshire roads to Helsby.

From Helsby the route turns southbound through Waverton, then diverts from the Eccleshall route to take in Saighton and Holt. You will ride past Bangor on Dee race course, so it might be worth while checking their race dates as I recommend avoiding those.

At Gobowen you could just call in at the Co-op near the Railway station for a snack (and the all important till receipt!), but there is the excellent Betty's Cafe just before Whittington, at Derwyn College and Hospital.

After Gobowen, there are some delightful Shropshire lanes as you skirt the spectacular scenery around Criggion to reach Montgomery. You could even call in at the Knockin Shop.

After a cafe stop at Montgomery, the route heads in a north-easterly direction to find a petrol station or the Co-op at Wem, then on to Hodnet. Note that there is a useful shortcut from Hodnet along Station Road, ignoring the "no through road" sign, through a gate and over the A53 Hodnet bypass as you head towards Eccleshall for another shop till receipt.
