Cycle Steps
1. Didsbury to Lyme Park and back. Relatively flat up until Lyme Park and then rolling hills with some off road riding required. Not suitable for road bikes, mountain bikes with slick tyres better. Plenty of pubs and Tea Shops on route, best being Sweet Shop next to Bull's Head Pub near canal at Higher Poynton. Avoids major roads but traffic still quite busy until Woodford.
Landmarks/Sites to see?
Lyme Park Hall (good picnic spots everywhere though wardens not too keen on cyclists) Bike shop in Handforth (I think, could've been Bramhall)
