    Distance The ride is 24.7 miles out to Walters Cafe in Higher Kinnerton and will be a Grade C ride. With a return route back to Red Rooms of 19.8 miles. 44.5 in total.

    Meeting We will be meeting at Red Rooms Cafe, Arrowe Park at 09:45 for a 10:00 depart.

    Possible obstacles There are a number of small hills or long climbs on this ride, there are also a few steep slopes but nothing too difficult. When crossing main roads or major junctions we will look for pedestrian crossings / islands and traffic lights.

    Route is available on Komoot Red Rooms to Walters with a return to route of Walters to Red Rooms

    Lunch will be at Walters which we as a group have visited on a number of times over recent years, I have booked tables. Should you have any dietary needs then please e mail the cafe and make your own individual arrangements.

    Hazards Riding a bicycle on public roads is inherently a risk, from busy traffic, 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 Hawarden, Shotton, Burton Marshes, Neston and onto the Red Rooms

    Trains On the outward leg there is a train station at Hooton and Capenhurst, on the return you can get a train from Neston that will take you to Bidston. 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
