Club Ride Saturday 7th March 2015

The Meeting point is at post code SK11 9AP in a lay by opposite a company called Auto Flow on the B5359 Alderley Rd near Chelford Island at 10am.
Then a short ride, roughly 3 miles to the base of the climb, Artist Lane. After the climb there will be a left turn and descent of the Wizard into Alderly Edge and a short ride back to the base of the climb.
The idea is to do as many accents as people feel comfortable with, then regroup at the top of the Wizard and move on to a descent called Birtles about a mile away and descend this.
This is as close a descent as you are going to get to the one in the Isle of Man, in terms of gradient, length and road surface. This climb and descent have been chosen to give you a feel of the gradient and distance of the climbs in the Isle of Man’s day two stage.
After the descent there will be an optional café stop or a short ride through the lanes back to the cars.
