The distance is 35 miles in total, 25 miles out 10 back. >>Route<<
We have a choice to make it more interesting (longer) by going to Water World at Borras garden centre where they have a nice café. The alternative less interesting (shorter) ride is to Cleopatra’s at Holt which we pass either way.
Outbound: Hooton, Blacon, to Saltney Ferry via Sealand Rd, through to Kinnerton and through nice countryside to arghhh! The dreaded Marfords Hill (more of a pimple) down Hoseley lane and a few more minor bumps on towards Borras. A group decision will be made at Borras Rd to go either to the Garden centre or Cleopatras.
Return: Across the river Dee, Farndon, Churton, via the back lanes onto the B5130 Chester rd to the defunct Rake and Pikel roundabout and onwards to Chester and the railway station.
I will be cycling back to Hooton/Bebington, and anyone is welcome to join me.
