Port Sunlight to Neston  via Backford and the Greenway

Leader: Steve Whittaker

Grade C

Meet at Port Sunlight outside the Tudor Rooms café at 0945am, for a 1000am start. (Note the café is closed on Sundays)

Note: I believe Nets Cafe is closed. I have booked a table at the Blue Bicycle Cafe in Neston. I believe we will be outside in a heated covered area.

Here is the Strava Route.

Note: The only rough section is the Missing Link. The 3 miles of canal tow path is on a very good (gravel or tarmac) surface. We will not be going on the Wirral Way.

Leaving Port Sunlight, we head towards Heath Road and Bracken Lane Road and on to Brimstage, Thornton Hough and Hooton via Benty Heath Lane. We then go through the Missing Link to Capenhurst and Dunkirk, and then alongside the railway to Backford. We turn right at the A41 for 200m and then right onto the canal. We follow the tow path (south) for about 3 miles until we come to the Greenway.

Distance 21 miles.

 

We follow the Greenway, through the Deeside Industrial estate and Burton Marshes and onto the Blue Cycle Cafe at Neston.

Distance 11 miles.

 

Total Distance 32 miles.

From the Cafe, I will ride either to Hooton (4 miles) or back to Port Sunlight (10 miles).
