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.

Plenty of pleasant Cheshire lanes through Swettenham, the Whitegate Way, Tatton Park and a cafe in the Pennyfarthing museum; what more could you ask for? It's a cracking ride, and if it is a little overdistance at 117km, that's because there's simply too much to fit in.

The start is at Dean Row, between Stockport and Wilmslow, where there is a 24 hour petrol station, or the Unicorn pub next door. There is parking in a nearby layby.

Head south, crossing the River Dane at Swettenham to reach the first control at Radway Green. Stop here at Hall Farm Cafe or you could try Radway Green Garden Centre, or the nearby Sainsburys, which has hot food and cake.

Pop under the M6 then it's back via lanes to Winsford and Bottom Flash then onto Whitegate Way, a former railway and now cycleway - give way to horses and dog walkers. It's not tarmac, but the surface is still OK even for skinny tyres and tandems.

The control at Cuddington is a convenience store, or you could try the bakery next door for a coffee and a treat from the cake counter. The control is only available 6am until 8pm, so choose your start time accordingly, or record your progress by GPX for validation.

As you wend your way around the outskirts of Northwich, spare a moment to marvel at Anderton Boat Lift.

Although there isn't a control at Knutsford, you should call in at the Courtyard Coffee House, which has a fine display of Pennyfarthings.

Finish with a ride through Tatton Park deer park and through the tunnels beneath Manchester Airport.
