Liverpool-Chester Cyclists Enjoy New NCYC Rest Stop

Published: 2nd July 2017 12:25

For the third year in a row, thousands of cyclists whizzed through Parkgate, Neston, Ness and Burton, as part of the route for the Liverpool-Chester-Liverpool bike ride.

Neston Community Youth Centre took the lead, to enable Neston to once more be part of the Pennine Events bike ride route.

A contribution from Cheshire West and Chester Councillor Martin Barker along with sponsorship from local businesses Harry Phipps & Co and Andrew's Estates, allowed NCYC to cover fees for the event and costs relating to the Rest Stop at their premises in Burton Road.

TRACS Cycle Repairs, Arrivée Performance Clothing and Elephant Collective's retro coffee van were amongst the local businesses supporting the event at the pitstop, alongside Cheshire Police who offered free security bike marking.  NCYC served up fresh fruit, water and home-made energy snacks to the visiting riders.

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. It includes a rare opportunity to cycle the 2.5 mile Queensway Tunnel under the Mersey.

Riders stopping for a break at Neston Community Youth Centre once again commented on how much they enjoyed the Neston section of the route, both for its beauty and for the welcome refreshments and repairs facilities on offer.

NCYC Manager, Gareth Prytherch, said: "Huge thanks to Harry Phipps & Co, Andrew's Estates and Cllr Martin Barker for making sure that 3000 riders were able, albeit very briefly for some of the athletes, to visit Parkgate and Neston.

"Our volunteers got up very early and worked incredibly hard to make the day a resounding success.

"In total 3000 cyclists consumed 3500 powerball truffles from Healthbox CIC and made by local children, two boxes of bananas, 300 coffees from the Elephant Coffee van, 10 bags of sweets, a box of apples and two boxes of oranges!"

Another local event blessed by great weather! Wonderful to see all these visitors cycling through our town again. It presents Neston in a very positive light. Everyone looks so happy and there was a great buzz in & around town all morning. Congratulations and huge thanks to the sponsors, volunteers and organisers for ensuring the route wound through Neston & Parkgate for a third year!
