Chester to Northwich

31 miles (50 km)

This ride follows National Cycle route 5 through Cheshire which passes the impressive Chester Zoo. The route starts by the railway station in Chester and soon joins the Shropshire and Union Canal for some pleasant waterside riding. You then pass through the outskirts of Chester on road before coming to the zoo which is well worth a visit. Soon after you rejoin the canal which takes you onto Little Stanley.
The route then turns east towards Elton and Ince where you join a traffic free section running parallel to the Manchester Ship Canal. This takes you into Frodsham where you cross the River Weaver. Minor roads take you through Aston before a lovely traffic free section along the River Weaver to Weaverham. You then continue on road to Northwich finishing by the tourist information centre.
