This is a Grade C ride of 32 miles, mostly on quiet streets, but also along shared paths across the many parks of Liverpool, so take care to avoid pedestrians and dogs; the group will be travelling slowly in those areas.
The start is next to the Beatles’ statue at the Pier Head and the route goes out via the Albert Dock along Jamaica Street and Grafton Street and past St Michael’s station before dropping down through the Festival Gardens to Otterspool Promenade. Then all the way along the promenade to Grassenden with a loop back to the riverside around Cressington before crossing Aigburth Road to go up Garston Old Road, Greenhill Road and Booker Avenue to Calderstones Park. Then down through Allerton across Penny Lane, through Greenbank Park and a quick loop around the south of Sefton Park before stopping for a quick break by the Eros Fountain in the centre of the park.
We then go North West to Prince’s Park and across Crown Street Park (the site of Liverpool’s first railway station) to the Botanical Gardens and then on to Newsham Park and out to Croxteth Hall Park. The return trip goes along the Liverpool loop Line to Walton Hall Park, then across Anfield cemetery to Stanley Park where it stops for lunch at The Cafe in the Park. . Then across the park at Everton Brow (with a quick stop to look at the incredible view of the City), before riding through the University and the Georgian Quarters, past the Anglican Cathedral, through Chinatown, and back to the Pier Head.
