Canalside Cycle Routes

Start and finish at Canalside Farm

Our very own Farmer Chris is a passionate cyclist, who rides over 50 miles a week across Cannock Chase and the surrounding countryside. This is why it is so important to us that our farm is ‘Cyclist friendly’, providing facilities and services which help make your ride to our area more enjoyable.

We provide an ideal meeting place to start a ride, take a mid-point refreshment stop or celebrate your day’s achievements! We are fortunate to be situated near to Staffordshire’s most prestigious cycling events during the year, so if you are involved in them or plan to go along to cheer on your favourite competitor do drop in to see us.


Located in Great Haywood on the UK’s National Cycle Network, I have mapped some lovely local rides for you to enjoy (see below). We hope to see you when you’re passing our way, meanwhile I wish you a safe, exhilarating cycle ride where ever the road may take you!

Canalside cycle routes for all the family to enjoy

Cycling is a great way of exploring Staffordshire’s network of canals and getting some exercise at the same time! If you’re planning a day out on your bike why not incorporate one of our cycle routes into it. They are suitable for all ages, are away from busy roads and take in the wonderful wildlife and countryside scenery which make our area so special.
