Occasionally we like to stray a little further afield for our regular Sunday jaunts. Today was a car assisted ride starting at Eastham Country park, near Birkenhead, for a ride around the Wirral Way.

In the glorious summer sunshine that we're having this year, ten riders met for the 10am start, riding alongside the Mersey through Port Sunlight and the busy dockland industrial landscape. With amazing views over Liverpool on the opposite bank, we headed north until we reached the mouth of the Mersey, and the coast for our lunch stop at Morrisons in New Brighton.

After lunch we switched from Industrial to Seaside following the coast around to Hoylake before our final change of scenery, Wooded Countryside, joining the cyclepath along the old railway line down to Parkgate for an Ice Cream.

Finally we cut back across to our start before driving home.

A fantastic day out with lots to see along the route.
