28 miles, Grade D: Neston to Chocks Away via the Dee path

This is a grade D ride, 28 miles long, starting in Neston from outside the Blue Bicycle cafe near the gate into the church grounds of St Mary’s & St Helens. It’s a little longer than the average D ride, but there are no (upward) gradients to speak of, & the going is on normal roads & good quality cycle tracks (with one tiny section of the Wirral Way at the very start). It heads out through Little Neston, passing Ness Botanic Gardens before tumbling down Denhall Lane to the boardwalk over the marshes, passing Toyota & accessing the Dee cycle path, onward to Saltney Ferry bridge. Lunch is at Chocks Away at Hawarden Airport. Returning via the Dee cycle path again as far as Jubilee Bridge, then through Garden City to the Dragon bridge, using the Greenway to access Deeside Industrial Estate & the boardwalk once more. The way back to Neston will pass Nets & The Harp.
