Here you go:
When living in Knutsford, I worked in Chester for a bit, so toyed with the idea of bike commuting and recce’d a route a few times, before deciding it was a bit far to do twice per day!
Millenium Greenway to Mickle Trafford…then it’s 4km on the A56 (which I cannot figure out how to avoid, but it’s better than the Tarvin Sands road)
The only “hill” is at 13km, so you’l be fresh (it’s about 8% and short)
It’s then plain sailing until 32km…you have to go over the locks, then it’s a rough shod gravel track from the River Weaver up to Moulton - I’ve done it on the TT bike and tubular tyres, so you should be fine if you are careful.
At 38.5km you cross the A530 - this tends to be a busy road, with HGVs coming up from the M6/Middlewich to the Morrisons distribution warehouse, etc. Just be careful and you’ll be reet!
Then, it’s total back roads all the way to Knutsford - I really like this bit and often do it still now.
I’ve taken you “round the back” in Knutsford, as the main roundabout can get very busy and I’ve witnessed two accidents there whilst walking back from the shops.
It’s then nice and easy to Tatton car park.
