1 Jul 2018 - Liverpool-Chester-Liverpool Bike Ride

Published: 11th April 2018 10:08

For the fourth year in a row, the Liverpool-Chester-Liverpool bike ride will be coming through Parkgate and Neston and, with the Neston Life app, we have a special discount for local riders wishing to take part.

The event is a non-competitive bike ride, suitable for people of all ages and abilities, as each participant can decide how much (or how little) of the total route they wish to cover.

Many participants start from outside the Queensway Tunnel in Liverpool, offering a rare opportunity to ride 2.5 miles under the River Mersey, traffic-free.  Alternatively, riders can start from the mid-way point at Countess of Chester Health Park.

This year's event is on Sunday 1st July, setting off from Liverpool in the early morning, with participants in different legs starting at different times. Most riders coming through the Neston area do so between approximately 8am and 11am.

The bike ride takes place largely on the Public Highway, which remains open to traffic, but also makes use of cycle ways/paths.

Neston Community Youth Centre has once again taken the lead to enable Neston to be part of the bike ride route, hosting the Rest Stop at their premises in Burton Road.

At the Rest Stop, event organisers Pennine Events will provide first aid and mechanics, whilst NCYC will co-ordinate other services and refreshments - from water, high-energy chocolate and fruit to freshly brewed coffee provided by the local, independent award winning shop ‘Elephant Coffee' who are bringing their van back.  

NCYC Manager Gareth Prytherch said: "We are delighted that for the fourth year running the LCL bike ride will visit Neston and Parkgate.

"The LCL bike ride is really important to the town because it ensures that a large number of visitors get to see a beautiful part of the route that most people drive by.

"At Neston Community Youth Centre, we look forward to welcoming all of the riders with a space to refresh, re-energise and relax (a little) before continuing on the road. We will be working with local businesses and community organisations to make sure that 2018 is the best yet."

This year, after consultation with Merseytravel, to mark the bike ride's special birthday the finish line will now be at the end of the Liverpool Dock Branch Exit, facing the world heritage site of the waterfront and the Royal Liver Buildings.

Event organisers Pennine Events are expecting that 2018 will be their biggest bike ride yet with more than 3,000 people estimated to take part.
