Starting from the Pier Head in Liverpool, this is a grade C ride out to and along the Liverpool Loop Line at just over 37 miles in length.
The route goes out to Toxteth, though Princess, Sefton and Calderstone’s Parks to Hunts Cross, then all the way along the Liverpool Loop Line to Aintree. Then back through the Rimrose Valley, Bootle and Walton for lunch at The Cafe in the Park in Stanley Park. There are park benches nearby for those who want to bring their own sandwiches. We will then return via Everton Brow, the University and by both Cathedrals, arriving back at the Pier Head.
The route is relatively flat, with just under half of the route on quite roads and just under half on dedicated cycleways. There is a section of 1.5 miles on the towpath of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal between Netherton and Litherland.
