This ride is ideal for anyone who hasn't been on a bike for a while, or anyone who wants to explore the beautiful parks of Liverpool. Most of the route is traffic free with a short section on quiet roads. We'll be going at an easy pace with several short stops to enjoy the views.

We especially welcome anyone who hasn't ridden a bike for a while & is looking to build their confidence.

CAR PARKING
If you're coming by car there is some parking on Greenbank Lane or there is a car park at Sefton Park opposite the end of Greenbank Lane.

OUR ROUTE
We cycle from the container to Sefton Park, past the Palm House and alongside the lake before leaving the park and crossing to Otterspool park via the underpass at Aigburth Vale. Then we'll cycle along the prom, through Festival Gardens and across Riverside Drive at the crossing. We'll cycle past St Michael's station and then on quiet roads back to Sefton Park.
