Macclesfield to: Whaley Bridge
Challenging in the extreme, Good surface, watch for SHEEP. Start at Tesco in Macc. Head out along Silk Road towards LEEK. Pass football gnd on right. Carry on to lights on FAST A road. At lights go left to BUXTON. After 10 miles of hair raising wheelies off rises and scraping of undercarriage turn RIGHT at junction to BUXTON. At next junction go LEFT. Ride into BUXTON, watch for LEFT TURN signed to WHALEY BRIDGE. Follow this road for 8 miles to WHALEY BRIDGE. At lights go STAIGHT OVER. Follow road to MACCLESFIELD and you will arrive at TESCO ready for more.

The Cat & fiddle is the best.Tight hairpins for kneedown action (although it slows you down),short straights where you can wring your bikes neck,fast double apex bends all interlinked to give you the top buzz when you get it right. The best time to do your laps are on long summer nights when the traffic is light,its like the TT. Due to too much press & fatalities the road is dogged by police & traffic at weekends.But if this is the only time you can come up,watch out for a unmarked green BMW car along with unmarked BMW bikes as well as a plane to spoil your fun. If you do get bored or you've just scared your self silly there are more top runs not far away such as A5004 Buxton to Whaley Bridge (watch out for some tight ones),and A535 Chelford to Holmes Chapel (very fast) to name just a few. Hope this is some help ENJOY.
MACCLESFIELD to: BUXTON
PROBABLY THE MOST DEMANDING ROAD IN THE UK. APPROX 10MLS OF QUALITY A ROAD. LOADS OF BENDS AND UNDULATIONS. OFF CAMBER BENDS A PLENTY. SUNDAYS IN SUMMER ARE MAD. IF YOU SURVIVE GO THROUGH BUXTON ON THE A6 THROUGH BAKEWELL TO MATLOCK BATH. LOADS OF BIKERS MEET THERE ALL THROUGH THE SUMMER. COME AND AVE A GO IF YOU THINK YER ARD ENOUGH. SEE YOU THERE.
