    This is a grade B minus ride starting at the Pier Head Liverpool at 10am after the arrival of the 9.40 ferry from Birkenhead Woodside. It is a B- ride due to the distance to E Port station of 48 miles plus some hills after lunch.  Ride pace will be normal for a C ride.

    Lunch will be taken at the Bluebell Cottage Gardens nursery where there is a small cafe serving tea, coffee & cakes (no hot food or sandwiches ).  Its fine for us to take our own sandwiches to enjoy with the tea & cake.

    Its 28 miles to lunch & the route to Dutton is via Otterspool, Hale, Pickerings Pasture, Runcorn Bridge and Bridgewater Canal, so we should arrive circa 1pm / 1.15.

    Following lunch we go via Dutton locks, Delamere Forest (on road ), Dutton on the Hill & the A5117 bridleway to E Port station; 20 miles to reach 48 on day.

    There are significant off road sections including canal towpath & other bridleways.
