On Saturday 7th September 2019 Joules will be hosting a charity Sportive.

The event will start and finish at the Red Lion (Joules Brewery) Market Drayton with two routes available a 57 mile option and a shorter 27 miles.

Both routes head up into Cheshire, with a split at Ash Magna, just before Whitchurch. The longer route skirts the side of Wales, passes on through Malpas, Burwardsley and the Peckforton Hills before providing a stunning view of Beeston Castle. The routes then merge at Aston for the return leg back to The Red Lion for a well deserved pint.
