Infamous for the Mow Cop Killer Mile (now part of the series with Tour of the Peak's Winnat's Pass Killer Mile and Shropshire Mynd's Long Mynd Burway Killer Mile), the Cheshire Cat celebrates it's 10th Anniversary in 2016 with a move to a new June date. Over recent years, the event has had 3000+ cyclists booked each year and now with a move to June, there's no need for winter training to get up the Killer Mile, Gun Hill or the Wincle hills! This is a sportive delivered by KILO TO GO - we go further.

Set in one of Cheshire's finest Victorian parks, Queen's Park in Crewe provides a beautiful 45 acres of ornamental garden and lake as a back-drop to the start and finish of the Cheshire Cat sportive encompassing CENTURY, CHAPEAU and ESPRESSO route options. The event takes in sights such as Jodrell Bank Observatory, Delamere Forest, Oulton Park Race Circuit and Gawsworth Hall whilst climbing some of the best hills in the area.

U16 ride for free

For 2016, a limited number of Under 16s can ride for free, as long as they are accompanied by a fee paying adult. The adult needs to enter the event, create a pre-paid group, and then add the U16 route option to the group - there's no need to choose a distance (it will show as 0). Once everything is confirmed, share your E-Invite with the U16 rider. We do not post rider packs out to U16 riders - they will need to pick the pack up on the day from the registration desk accompanied by the adult.
