It will take less than fifteen minutes on your bike to reach the country lanes of leafy Cheshire where much of your time will be spent on training rides. Our Chain Gang loop around the lanes of Pickmere is only a short ride away and the challenging hills of the Peak District are just a warm up ride away. The National Cycling Centre in central Manchester is easily accessed and has fantastic facilities for BMX, Mountain Biking and of course, the boards on the world famous Velodrome itself.
