30 miles, Grade C: Tour of North Wirral Windmills from Bromborough Station

This is a grade C ride but there are quite a few hills (e.g., Bidston and Grange) and there are significant off-road sections: Bidston Hill- the tracks are so rough there we will have to dismount and push our bikes, but the views are worth it! Alternatively, a mountain bike there may be possible, but you must be skilled at riding it! The other off-road section is Landican Lane on the way back.

This is a 30-mile tour of 4 North Wirral Windmills (only one existing and the other three sites of) plus a number of other interesting historic sites: Bidston Mill, Bidston Hill, Bidston Observatory, Bidston Lighthouse, Bidston Hall, Leasowe Lighthouse, West Kirkby War Memorial, Grange Mill/ Grange Beacon or Column, Irby Mill, Higher Bebington Mill.

Lunch is at the Irby Mill pub (as well as a great menu it has a good selection of real ales and nice old photos of what the mill looked like in the 19th and early 20th Centuries). Alternatively, if the weather is good, sandwiches at the War Memorial or Beacon would be great.
