RID­ERS are gear­ing up for the re­turn of Bolling­ton’s mass char­ity bike ride.

The Bolling­ton Bike Fest has been or­gan­ised by the Town Coun­cil, along with Mac­cles­field Lions, Girl Guid­ing Cheshire Bor­der and Adel­phi Mill Prop­er­ties, and will take place on Sun­day, Septem­ber 3.

The Fest has raised £1,000s for char­ity with part of this year’s pro­ceeds go­ing to­wards the East Cheshire hos­pice and a defibrillator for out­side Bolling­ton Town Hall.

The event in­cludes three rides of vary­ing dif­fi­cul­ties so that cy­clists of all ages and abil­i­ties can take part.

The eas­i­est route is the Twenty is Plenty, which is 20k along the Mid­dle­wood Way and back and is part of Route 55 of the Na­tional Cy­cle­way. The route is car free and safe for all ages, with pic­nic spots along the way.

The Bolly Bash takes rid­ers 46 miles rid­ing along Cheshire Lanes and foothills, with the Grimshaw Gru­eller tak­ing in the same route plus an­other 35 miles and 5,000ft clas­si­fied climbs. All the routes will be fully mar­shalled with in­ter­me­di­ate feed-sta­tions, with a bar­be­cue and drinks at the end.

The event be­gins at the Adel­phi Mill on Grimshaw Lane, with reg­is­tra­tion from 8.00am. The fam­ily ride costs £10 per cy­clist, while the Bolly Bash and the Grimshaw Gru­eller cost £20 per per­son, or £25 on the day. All prices in­clude a bar­be­cue and re­fresh­ments.
