Wednesday November 14th (B/C ride)

Start:- Tesco Heswall

Leaving 10:45 - Sign in earlier

Lunch: Hawarden

Leader: Gill

This weeks ride takes us to The Gallery Cafe in Hawarden where will have a soup/sandwich special agreed at£6 head.

Given the time of year I am planning a 35 round trip from Tesco Heswall, if the weather is great I might extend the ride with an extra loop via Heswall Hills and Thornton adding 3 ish miles but this will be decided by the weather. (Meet in cafe from 10 for a hot drink?)

As the map shows our route is out via Parkgate down through the Burton Marshes to the Dee and then across at the blue Bridge at Garden City.

We then head out the back of Queensferry to Mancot with a steep climb into Hawarden to a new venue for lunch.

Return is via Ewloe and Connah’s Quay over Shotton Railway Bridge and then back to Heswall via Neston.  As it’s winter we will keep the speed over 10mph and with the hill into Hawarden even though the distance is relatively short I would class this as a C/B ride.
