This is a 20 mile Grade D ride from Port Sunlight to reach Thornton Hough Village Hall by 12:30 in time for the participants to have lunch before the First Aid course scheduled to start at 13:30
The ride leader is still to be decided [any volunteers, please contact John Hampson]. The ride leader will be at the start by the entrance to Port Sunlight station at 09:45.
The route leaves Port Sunlight along the old railway track to the end of Port Causeway then via the cycle tracks to Eastham Woods. Then up towards Eastham Village, but turning left into Bankfields Drive to go all the way along North Road and through the M53 underpass at the end, before going up via Riveacre and Overpool Roads to Mill Lane, crossing the A41 at the traffic lights, and on through the housing estate to Ledsham Road. Using the pedestrian lights to cross the Welsh Road onto Badger’s Rake Lane as far as the Chester High Road and then down through Burton, and up through Ness and Neston to reach the Dee estuary at Parkgate. The final stretch is up Boathouse Lane, via Leighton and the Runnel to descend Parkgate Lane into Thornton Hough.
