Stoke-On-Trent to Northwich
This route starts at the train station in Stoke-On-Trent and follows National Cycle route 5 to Northwich. From the start point you head north passing through the lovely Hanley and Central Forest Parks on your way to Bruslem. A mixture of off road paths and short on road sections take you to Kidsgrove where you can enjoy a short stretch along the Trent & Mersey Canal.
The route continues through the countryside on quiet roads to Sandbach, following the canal and the off road Wheelock rail trail. More country lanes then take you onto Middlewich where you join the Shropshire Union Canal for another pleasant waterside stretch. A short on road spell then brings you to the Weaver Valley Cycleway at Winsford, which takes you along the Weaver Navigation Canal to Northwich, finishing by the canal at the tourist information centre.
