Haute Rouleurs Winter Warmer - Sunday 29th October 2017
WHERE: The Woodford Centre, Chester Road, Woodford, Cheshire. SK7 1PS.
Now in it's fourth year, this end of season event sees riders heading out on a route which takes in many quiet Cheshire lanes. It’s nice and flat and the 63 mile distance isn't too long so you can stretch your legs or simply have a social ride out with friends.
From 2017 the Winter Warmer organisation will be taken over by Haute Rouleurs.
At Polocini we have many fantastic memories from all of the events that we have organised but the time has come to focus on our Cycling Tours. We look forward to watching the events go from strength to strength as the team at Haute Rouleurs will be introducing a motorbike escort service, a mechanic on route, downloadable GPS maps of each route, a strava group exclusive to each sportive and prizes for certain segments/overall times. Coaching staff will also be on hand should you wish to ask for any advice on training, recovery or nutrition.
Pre and post ride food from Masterchef finalist Jackie Kearney of The Hungry Gecko is still included with event entry.
Last years route can be found HERE. There will be a few small route tweaks now the new A556 road is open. This will improve the route and the website will be updated as soon as they are finalised.
The final route gpx files will be updated on the Saturday afternoon before the ride once final checks of the route have been made. The files are used purely as a guide and you should always follow the route arrows.
