The Bridge Inn at Chirk

Nine of us left the Town Hall to head for Kinnerton via Lache Lane only to find the road closed at Balderton AHB crossing after a short detour we meet up with Kath and Stu.

Continuing on route through Barton Green and Llay where we entered Alyn Waters Country Park where we had our coffee stop. 

After coffee three departed due to other things we carried on up to Summerhill through Southsea, Coedpoeth and past Nant Mill and on to Penycae before joining the canal tow path at Trevor to cross the Pont Cysylite Aquaduct and carry on towards Chirk going through tunnel past Chirk Marina.  When we got to the Chirk tunnel a few riders opted not to go through so i took then on an alternative route to the other side where we all meet up again before crossing the Chirk Aquaduct before going to the Bridge Inn for lunch where Paul joined us. 

After lunch we cycled through Chirk before joining the A5 for a short distance before joining the canal tow path for a second crossing of the Pont Cysylite Aquaduct continuing onto Ruabon passing Middle Sontly and then Marchweil, 

Due to a late departure from lunch it looked like we would miss our tea stop but all was saved as Kath kindly offered to provide at hers, after quick alteration to route we skirted Wrexham then going via the Flash to Gresford through Burton back to Kinnerton for tea, heading back to Chester via Bretton and the river. 

Many thanks to Kath for the afternoon tea stop


Also thanks to Ray for the photos and Dave for leading and sending me some words! Sue
