The good news is that there is some money forthcoming for new cycle route signs around the town, so at last we will have ones that state a destination. Useful for all. We just have to decide where they will be best places.
The third edition of the Congleton Cycle Network Map (free) is now available to show you the way into and across town without using busy and intimidating roads.
