AROUND 800 cyclists are set to pass through the streets of Knutsford later today, Tuesday, as part of a ride from Land's End to John O'Groats.

The peloton is expected to reach Cheshire in the early afternoon, as they tackle stage four of the Deloitte Ride Across Britain.

The route through Cheshire

Ultimately racking up 969 miles over nine days, today's ride takes them 107 miles from Ludlow in Shropshire to Haydock, near St Helens.

From Middlewich, cyclists will take Byley Lane through Lower Peover, joining the A50 at Toft through the centre of Knutsford, towards Mere and onto High Legh.

This stage is known as the 'easy' part of the trip due to the flat ground and relatively short distance.

Roads will remain open to traffic throughout the event.
