The Alvanley Arms was a lunch stop on a recent CTC Sunday run. A nice place with the Shire Horse Centre adjacent to it. It started to rain when we were leaving so no photo with this post but the link is as it says on the tin.
To help me manage the routes which are quite long these days I’ve decided to start listing interesting points as a seperate list. This is because I can only have one Lat/Lon reference per post at the moment.
Anyway old Terry showed me this point and its worth doing when your up to it.(Terry is 77 by the way)
If your heading out of Burton take the fork to the left before the climb to Ness Gardens.
It emerges at the buss turn around next to Ness Gardens. Good toilet stop 100 yards from the gate (hot water from the taps)
The picture quality is poor as it was taken on a mobile phone (1.3mp) Pinarello Terry does this climb 3 times.
This is the first route I am going to do and the easyest. There is a slight rise halfway along that might require you to change down a gear or two BEFORE you hit the bottom, not when your starting to struggle half way up.
Start: Seacombe Ferry
Finnish: New Brighton
Start is at Seacombe Ferry and the finish is the pub at New Brighton they have been renovating for what seems like years. This is just meant to be a taster route and to let me get the hang of things.
As you can see it’s deserted at this time of the morning.
Next picture is just past the pub that overllooks the Mersey.
Youve just come down this slope, so keep pedalling. Next up is the slope I was telling you about at the start.
The next picture is the end of the route.
Now turn around and ride back to the start. That shouldn’t take too much out of you.
