Lunch is on the seats in the Groves next to the River Dee in Chester.  The cafe there serves take-away food only, so people can either buy something at the cafe or bring their own sandwiches and a drink. There are public toilets at the Groves.   The route gets to Chester via Rivacre Park, Little Stanney and Upton-by-Chester stopping for a ‘banana’ break by the elephants at Chester Zoo (you can often see them from the path); and returns via the cycle track around Chester Racecourse, then through Blacon, Saughall, Capenhurst and back to Hooton.
