Route L15 - Mucklestone & Loggerheads (17 miles-harder)

ADAPT » Cycle Maps » Route L15 - Mucklestone & Loggerheads (17 miles-harder)

Visit three counties in one ride! Beautiful countryside throughout and great views.
This is hillier than most of our routes, but the gradients are generally moderate and the views make it worthwhile. There are 4 main climbs: one moderate ascent either side of Norton in Hales, the gradual climb to Mucklestone and the steeper unmade track, Rock Lane, towards Loggerheads. The village of Loggerheads takes its name from that of the public house, which used to be known as The Three Loggerheads (meaning "The Three Fools").

  • The exit and return to Audlem involve a short stretch of the A525, where care should be taken.
  • The crossing of the A525 at the end of School Lane requires care
  • The double roundabout junction with the A53 at Loggerheads is busy and complex. Take great care if crossing to The Loggerheads pub on the south side.
