Welcome to this years Jodrell Bank Classic which will be held on the Saturday the 26th of March 2016. Once again we will be starting at Poynton Leisure Centre, Yew Tree Lane, Poynton then heading off into the Cheshire Plains.We have two challenging routes which have been designed by experienced local club cyclists.
We are pleased to announce that High 5 are once again our fuelling partners, we will also have Chris Meads a professional photographer and keen local cyclist taking pictures.
We have tweeked the routes once again keeping the best bits, and adding some new sections just to keep it interesting.
The first part of the course is fast and flat across the Chesire plains skirting past the famous Jodrell Bank Radio telescope. Towards the end of the ride it gets a little lumpy there are a few small climbs, on the 50 mile route and 80 mile routes riders also have to tackle the Pott Shrigley climb which a steady gradient up past the village and golf course, a little sting in the tail.
