Embracing the ever growing cycling community in Halton; Runcorn Cycle Club and British Cycling are leading this ride that not only takes in the fabulous Trans Pennine Trail, but also the sights and sounds of the new Mersey Gateway Development taking place in the area. The ride is predominantly flat and heads east from the The Catalyst Museum in Widnes, along the Trans Pennine Trail towards Warrington. The route then crosses the Mersey River and heads back through Moore Nature Reserve and onto the cycle paths of Runcorn. There is the option on the return to divert to the new urban Cafe in Phoenix Park, Runcorn for a drinks break, or we can continue along the Bridgewater Canal Tow Path to the current Silver Jubilee Bridge to take a cool photo. But we're not done, 2 mins from the bridge we return to The Catalyst, where you can rack your bike up and then visit the FREE ENTRY Mersey Gateway Visitor Centre in The Catalyst to find out about the interesting facts and figures of the new bridge build. Still not done? Then you can grab refreshments at the museum cafe. We're hoping to get some information from the Mersey Gateway Project Team so that we can provide in ride facts making for a thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating ride.
