Is it safe and does it involve Charlton Heston or Roddy McDowall :shock:

You will find it on the map just South of where is says "Dragons live beyond here"
This is a new destination near to Alsager's Bank (handy for the cash machine).
Remember to wait at junctions so we do not lose anyone in this uncharted territory.

Big THANK YOU :cheers: :cheers: To Greg, Joe, Alex, and other rider whose name I do not know for sheperding me along the A34 from Apedale yesterday.

Freewheel deceided to pack up other side of Chesterton. My Mechanics managed to turn freewheel into fixed with the aid of wire from a obliging fence.

Managed to ride virtually all the way to Congelton where I was picked up by support teamcar driven by Joe Brownhill. Even managed to get up to 28mph on parts of Newcastle Road !!!

Now going to look on tinternet for new set of winter wheels ready for riding in deepest North Wales next weekend.

We did find a very minor Road from Alasger Bank.
Pete and I stopped to locate the nearest cafe. We looked up and everyone had gone. We headed to the A34 turn right (South) passed the bakeries, right at the next roundabout to Morrisons. We we joined by another 10 led by Dave Harbottle. The cakes were such good value Chris C had 2. Hilly route back over Talk Pits and Ackers crossing

I can't take the credit John, it was JBaguley's Android phone's satnav that found Morrison's.
