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. Wirral Cycling Group Risk Assessment policy
After Lunch We will be returning back to Thornton Hough via Mill Lane (Neston) and Dunhill Lane.
