7 March Tegg’s Nose for 3 Shires Bridge

Seven of us set out from Tegg’s Nose country park a few miles E of Macclesfield for a challenging ride along tracks and back roads to Three Shire Heads where Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire meet. The bridge here crosses our very own River Dane just a mile or two from its source.

Here we are near Bottom of the Oven before the climb up to the Cat & Fiddle which we finished off on a track from the tea shop. Lots of model gliders were catching the strong updraft near the top. After Three Shire Heads we took a tough track past some motorcycle trials riders towards Flash. Down and up along some back roads to the Eagle and Child, which less young WVCC members will remember as a lunch stop in the 70s & 80s. From there a track took us over to the A54 and the cafe at Blaze Farm for a lunch of Staffordshire Oatcakes.

A short way down the main road and another track with a deceptively deep ford (wet feet) brought us out on the Wildboarclough road. A little detour over to Macc Forest before the final grind back up to the car park before we had seen more than a drop of the promised rain.

As a club, we’d like to wish Andrew Simpson @simmo_on_sport all the best for the future, with a heartfelt thanks for supporting WVCC all these years....
