Wednesday November 22nd

Start:- Birkenhead Park Cafe

Leaving 10:45 - sign in earlier

Lunch: Port Sunlight Garden centre

Leader: Jill


A Wirral Villages ride, we are starting at Birkenhead Park visitors centre; tea, coffee available.


After cycling round the park we head up towards Oxton Village, Duck Pond Lane Park, Prenton, Storeton, Brimstage, Thornton Hough, Raby, Childer Thornton, Eastham Village then pick up the Wirral Circular Trail to Port Sunlight Garden Centre Cafe.


There are places available in Port Sunlight to eat sandwiches if you don't want to use the cafe.


The route is around 24 miles and undulating rather than hilly!

Bebington Station has the easier return access and is only 5 mins away from the Garden Centre.

Port Sunlight Station is nearer but has steep steps!

If you’ve looked at the route, you’ll be glad to know we've now changed Rosemount, Ingestre Rd to… Templemore Rd, Townfield Lane, Shavington Ave, Holm Lane.

This is to avoid a particularly nasty sharp turn, where it was way too easy to end up on the wrong side of the road!
