This is a ride originally planned for 8th December 2021 but cancelled due to storm Barra. It is a mostly flat, 20 mile, grade D ride, keeping in mind the brief daylight hours that are available in January. The ride leader is Robert Holmes.

Starting at the Birkenhead Park visitor centre the route travels via Seacombe Ferry, Egremont and New Brighton. Turning inland at the clown roundabout, the route joins a series of paths which eventually lead to the Leasowe Lighthouse where we will stop for a banana break. From the Lighthouse the route will join the sea wall and travel along the coast via Meols and Hoylake, eventually reaching the third Wirral Coastline at West Kirby. The final leg of the journey is along the Wirral Way, leaving it at the bottom of Station Road, Thurstaston where the Whistle Stop Café is situated.
