Grit and Gears II Mountain Bike Route

This is a longish mountain bike ride from the Tegg’s Nose Country Park near Macclesfield that varies from forests to high moorland. There are a few sections along main roads, but they’re short if not sweet, and a fair few pubs along the way (including the Cat and Fiddle). Some sections get pretty remote, so take an emergency repair kit and a few spare tubes.
