This grade D ride is 21 miles long and starts at Woodside Ferry terminal at 11:30. It joins up with a Grade C ride which started at Ellesmere Port at 10:00. So the group led by John Hampson should arrive at Woodside Ferry at between 11:20 and 11:30. The ride is mostly flat with just two hills of 150ft each at Bidston and West Kirby.
The route will take us to all the lighthouses, past and present, on the Wirral peninsular (except the one at Ellesmere Port) and is due to finish at West Kirby Railway Station between 15:00 and 16:00.
