Macclesfield Bikeathon 2010 Announced!

As predicted by Thoughts From The Bike the Macclesfield Bikeathon returns in 2010 on Sunday 16th May.

One of my favourite sportives of the season, there is a choice of 52, 26 and 13 miles. Those into their cycling will be up for the 52 which takes us into the hills surrounding Macclesfield to test the legs early on taking in Wincle, Heston, Biddulph, Astbury and Congleton before meeting up with the 26 miles at Siddington where the route is then pan flat.

The 52 and 26 then continue along the glorious country lanes surrounding Siddington, although these can be tough roads if the wind is up, taking us around Jodrell Bank into the quiet Swettenham and back home to Macclesfield.

Both the 26 and 13 miles are pan flat which is great for those new to cycling. Due to the quiet roads, families and little ones compete in the 13 miles, although caution is to be exercised on the last stretch heading back into Macclesfield.

Start time for the 52 mile is 8.15. The route is all on road and the atmosphere is really good too -they always lay on a good party at the end.

Entry is only £10 too with proceeds going to charity so all good! Check out the website at http://www.macclesfieldbikeathon.co.uk
