The ride will be 28 miles long, Grade C, starting at 10 am from outside Hooton railway station.  Trains arrive at Hooton from Hamilton Square at 9:42 and 9:57 on Sunday mornings.  The ride leader will be John Hampson and he will be at Hooton station from 9:45.  We aim to be back at Hooton before 14:00.

We plan to eat on the seats in the Groves next to the River Dee in Chester.  We expect the café there to be serving take-away food only, so people can either buy something there or bring their own sandwiches and a drink. We also expect the public toilets at the Groves to be open.   We will go to Chester via Rivacre Park, Little Stanney and Upton-by-Chester stopping for a ‘banana’ break by the elephants at Chester Zoo (you can often see them from the path); and we will return via the cycle track around Chester Racecourse then through Blacon, Saughall, Capenhurst and back to Hooton.
