By booking onto this ride you agree that:

  • you will act responsibly and adhere to the rules of the road and countryside;
  • you acknowledge that it is your responsibility to ensure that any manoeuvre that you make is carried out safely;

  • a mobile phone

Distance The ride is 11.6 miles out to Quirky Cafe in Hoylake and will be a Grade D ride. With a return route back to Red Rooms of 8.9 miles. 20.5 in total.

Meeting We will be meeting at Red Rooms (Golf Shop Arrowe Park) at 10:30 for a 10:45 depart.

Possible obstacles Nothing to cause any great concern the biggest slope is the ride up Montgomery Hill and that is not very steep at all, this ride is designed to help you to develop your road craft skills of dealing with traffic and riding within the group.

Route is available on Komoot Red Rooms to Quirky Cafe Hoylake

Lunch will be at Quirky Cafe (about 12:30) which we as a group have visited on a number of times over recent years. Should you have any dietary needs then please phone the cafe (07850175823) and make your own individual arrangements.

Hazards Riding a bicycle on public roads is inherently a risk, you can mitigate those risks by being aware of other road users and anticipating their likely actions.

After Lunch I will be returning back to Red Rooms via Carr Lane, Meols and Greasby.

Trains There is a train station in West Kirby that will give you access to the Wirral Line so I would advise you to bring money for both your lunch and the train should you choose to use them. 

Questions via email please to Peter Williams
