Keen and amateur cyclist will love the Cheshire Cycleway which boasts tow paths, hills, moorland, tarmac roads and quiet lanes - rent a a bike or bring yours on the back of your car.
Walkers and nature lovers staying in Cheshire are well catered for by the Sandstone Trail, This was originally opened in 1974 but has been recently extended to link the towns of Frodsham and Whitchurch. The train is split in to three sections of around 10 miles (17km). Each section generally makes for an enjoyable day's walk, but the terrain varies dramatically so it's best to plan a suitable route for your abilities. You may have to deviate from the trail to reach pubs and cafes, but you could always take a long a picnic instead.
