The ride takes us to The Dream via Rainhill. The web site for The Dream is http://www.dreamsthelens.com if you want to learn about it but here is a summary. "Dream takes the form of a 20 metre high girl's head with her eyes closed, seemingly in a dream-like state, resting on a plinth bearing the inscription "Dream Sutton Manor" inspired by the small, circular "tally" each miner carried as a means of identification. The notion is simple but profound, in our dreams, anything is possible...".
Be warned, there are two climbs, the first on Hall Lane into Rainhill then The Dream its self. After this the ride continues to a short refreshment break at a garden centre after which we will head back to the start/finish point at Hunts Cross.

Come and explore The Dream and Sutton Manor!
