John Hampson 14:15 27th August
This is a ride of 38 miles, Grade C on mainly flat quiet country lanes, but with one big hill up to the Beacon Country Park (425 ft in two miles).
The ride starts from outside Formby Railway station at 10:45 and John Hampson, the ride leader will be at the start from 10:30. On Sunday mornings trains arrive at Formby Station from Liverpool at 10:22 and 10:37.
The route goes out from Formby to Great Altcar, then on to Downholland and Aughton, south of Ormskirk, and north of Skelmersdale, before the ascent of Beacon Hill after 17 miles, where we will stop for a break to get our breath back. Then down the other side of the hill to Upholland, turning north to Newburgh and on for lunch at Burscough Bridge after 27 miles. After lunch we will go back to Southport where trains leave for Liverpool every 15 minutes on Sunday afternoons. Here is the route on Komoot: Formby to Southport via Beacon Country Park
