Share



Here are a variety of rides organised by the Congleton Cycling Campaign, plus links to other rides in East Cheshire and Stoke-on-Trent.  Scroll much further down for links to various cycle groups.

Rode Hall Farmers’ Market Ride

Congleton Cycling Campaign’s regular leisurely ride is along quiet lanes via Ackers Crossing to the Farmers’ Market at Rodpe Hall, returning via a pub for lunch, and back to Congleton for around 2.30pm. Approx. 12 miles. Bring your panniers/baskets to fill with good local food. See the calendar below for dates and meeting place details.

N.B. The Farmers’ Market ride is an informal arrangement, with a few CCC members regularly involved. However, there are times when people have other obligations or the weather is atrocious, so you may find no-one else at the meeting point. Peter often knows who’ll be going, so for more details about any weekend rides, email Peter.

N.B. For all rides, children must be accompanied by an adult.
