An incursion into Wales to the fine old town of Ruthin in Denbighshire.

You approach Ruthin in the Vale of Clwyd from the spectacular Bwlch Penbarras, crossing the Clwydian range of mountains the 'easy' way, although the descent to Ruthin is 'interesting' enough that you ought to stop if you want to admire te views.

The Perm starts from Dean Row (between Stockport and Wilmslow) with parking available in a nearby layby. You head for Waverton, over the Cheshire Plain via Vale Royal, Daveham and Cotebrook. After all those quiet lanes, the ride goes into Chester City Centre using the canal tow path, then alongside the River Dee and into Wales via Kinnertion and past the former youth hostel at Maeshafn. Penbarras is the literal high point of the ride before the exhilarating descent to Ruthin.
