34 miles, Grade C: Hooton to West Kirby via Bebington

Start outside Hooton station

The route meanders across Wirral heading first towards Thornton Hough then up Redhill Rd towards Bebington, up through Prenton, Saughall Massie, Upton to West Kirby. 21 miles to the lunch stop.

Lunch is at Tanskeys in Coronation gardens.

The return for those wishing to ride back to Hooton is along the Wirral Way as far as Thurstaston then up to Irby, Pensby, Thornton Hough, Willaston and back to Hooton.  A 34 mile round trip.

There are quite a few hills on this ride – Resthill Rd, Mount Rd and  Burrell Rd in Prenton, Ford Rd, Upton on the outward leg and on the return leg Station Rd, Thurstaton and Irby Rd Pensby. None of these are too challenging though.  For every uphill there is usually a corresponding downhill such as Bracken Lane in Bebington, Reservoir Rd and Waterpark Rd in Prenton and Saughall Massie Lane.
