Sideways Cycles

Where are we?

131 Talke Road

    Alsager is a great little town on the North Staffs/South Cheshire border. There's a few nice specaility shops here and some good restaurants too. It's also home of Europe's biggest toilet factory. We have some pretty good riding on the doorstep and we're close to the Peak District, North Wales and some other good riding spots.

    To get here by road get to junction 16 of the M6 and head up the A500 towards Stoke. Leave the A500 at the next exit, signposted Alsager. Whizz down the twisty country lane (watch the bends though) until you reach civilisation.You'll pass the Manor House Hotel on your left and soon you'll see the railway crossing. Turn right immediately before the crossing, into Talke Road - we're about 200yds further, on the left. Blink and you'll miss us though, we don't have a front door either, years ago someone broke the window, so we replaced the frontage with a single window and you have to enter via our neighbour 'Motorways'. Sounds daft, is daft, but it works for us. If you're making a special journey, then it's best to call first, as having three kids means we occasionally shut the shop at short notice to go and do family stuff.

    Coming by rail is easy - get a train to anywhere on the Crewe to Derby line. A connection can be had to Alsager and the station is at the end of our road. Leave the platform, turn left and then left again, into Talke Road. Follow the smell of fresh coffee...
