The ride will be just over 25 miles long, Grade C, starting at 10 am from outside the Tudor Rose Tea Rooms opposite Port Sunlight railway station.  Trains arrive at Port Sunlight from Hamilton Square at 9:46 and from Hooton at 9:52 on Sunday mornings.  The ride leader will be John Hampson and he will be at the start from 9:45.  We aim to be back at Port Sunlight between 13:30 and 14:00.

We will go out along the cycle track to Eastham Ferry and have a short break in Eastham Village for a banana (or chocolate) break before passing through Willaston, and on to Raby, Thornton Hough, Brimstage and up Landican Lane, before a stop for lunch at the Red Rooms café at Arrowe Park.  The café should be open for take-aways, but with Covid-19 restrictions, we will most probably have to eat outside.  But that does mean that you can bring your own sandwiches and drinks if you prefer.   I suspect that the toilets there will be shut, but we will go past Asda supermarket at Woodchurch two miles later if anyone needs to go.  Our final leg will be via Prenton, Victoria Park and Rock Park before returning to Port Sunlight station.

Bookings no longer allowed on this date.
