Only bit I don't know that well is the route back in via Styal .
That's not a hill in Styal - I was chatting to a colleague about it, and I siad "Where is this hill" - it's just a dip - down one side, up the other. The road before used to be cobbled, but now tarmaced over - shame as it added some interest.... don't worry about it. Cheshire is lumpy. The 'lumps' might challenge a beginner, but not an experienced cyclest.
What's the sign posting like ?
And more importantly, where are the stops / refreshments / what do they sell ?
I might not go quite that way round Northwich myself, and the road at Wettonhall is so potholey it could be good training for Paris-Roubaix
There's a fast downhill into a 90 degree righthand bend and then the road kicks up through some woods just before the prison.
Does anyone know why there is a 30 min stop half way around on this ????
