    Distance The ride is 23.7 miles out to Boat Museum Ellesmere Port and will be a Grade C ride. With a return route back to Red Rooms of 15.5 miles. 39.2 in total.

    Meeting We will be meeting at Red Rooms Cafe, Arrowe Park golf shop, at 09.45 for a 10:00 depart.

    Possible obstacles Nothing too worrying in terms of hills, a bit of a slope up out of Parkgate and Burton, where possible when crossing major roads we will use traffic lights or pedestrian crossing points.

    Route is available on Komoot Red Rooms to Ellesmere Port

    Lunch will be at the Boat Museum cafe approximately 12.30 which we as a group have visited on a number of times over recent years, I have booked a table, preferably outside but this is dependent upon the weather. Should you have any dietary needs then please phone the cafe and make your own individual arrangements.

    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. If you have not done so then please do read the WCG guide and Risk Assessment policy

    After Lunch I will be returning back to Red Rooms via Hooton, Raby and Thornton Hough.

    Trains There a number of stations (Merseyrail and Welsh rail) on route that will return you to the Wirral so I would advise you to bring money for both your lunch and the train should you choose to use them. 

    Questions via email please to Peter Williams
