      Tel: 0151 639 5730. and will be a
      Grade D ride. With a return route back to Red Rooms of 7.8 miles. 21.6 in total.

      Meeting We will be meeting at Red Rooms Cafe (Golf shop), at 9.45 for a 10:00 depart.

      Possible obstacles Nothing too worrying in terms of hills, climb up throuogh Prenton and then down hill and along the promenade. So it’s a fairly flat course, where possible when crossing major roads we will use traffic lights or pedestrian crossing points.

      Route is available on Komoot Red Rooms to Bluebelle Cafe

      Lunch will be at the Bluebelle cafe approximately 12am (Noon) which we as a group have visited on a number of times over recent years. Should you have any dietary needs then please phone the cafe and make your own individual arrangements. Tel: 0151 639 5730

      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 Bidston Moss, Upper Bidston, Woodchurch.

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