We will meet at Hamilton Square rail station. If you are coming from Liverpool, there are trains every five minutes from James St Station. We will then head north and follow the Wirral coastal path through New Brighton and round the headland to West Kirkby. There we will join the Wirral Way disused rail line, and cycle to our cafe stop in Neston. From there, we ride alongside the River Dee path and into the historic city of Chester.

Part of our Breeze ride series, "Autumn to Winter", this is a great ride on cycle trails building up to Christmas! We will be riding one way only from Hamilton Square Station to Chester. Return journey must be at the riders own arrangement. Trains run regularly from Chester back up the Wirral and over to Liverpool.

The route is almost completely traffic-free, using the Wirral coastal path, the Wirral Way and the River Dee cycle path into Chester. Great for those who are less confident about riding in traffic.

We will be stopping for well-earned refreshments at Netts Cafe on the Wirral Way near Neston.

The Wirral Way can get a bit muddy and slippy in the winter, so I would recommend a bike with wider tyres and mudguards. Warm layered clothing and waterproofs are a must.

Although this ride is quite long for first timers, it is flat and on traffic-free paths. If you feel you can do the distance then come and give it a try. If not, then look for our Friday rides which are a bit shorter around the city of Liverpool.
