Both longer routes start from Market Place heading west towards Jodrell Bank then north towards the feed station at Great Warford Baptist Church. From here, the route splits:
Shorter route 33 mile riders will take a Northerly heading towards Alderley Edge and Mottram St Andrew before returning to the Macclesfield centre.
Long route 64 mile riders continue west, following quiet Cheshire lanes towards Tatton Park taking in views as you ride through the parkland. From here the route goes over the M6 before heading South towards Byley and then turns Northeast heading back towards the feed station for another refreshment stop before the final push back to Macclesfield.
A NEW 12 mile family route also starts at Market Place and heads North out of Macclesfield along The Middlewood Way towards Poynton where the route heads South back towards Macclesfield.
All routes finish at Market Place in Macclesfield Town Centre where the riders will collect goodie bags and enjoy stalls and entertainment.
The Bikeathon concept is simple – book, turn up to ride and raise money for Just Drop In Macclesfield
