Pedal Pushers on the Wirral again!

Taking advantage of the good weather, and the slightly less packed trains before the schools break up, the Pedal Pushers had another Wirral ride today. Catching the train to Brunswick we cycled back to the pier head to catch the ferry to Seacombe. Once here we had a great ride along clear cycleways as far as New Brighton. Some of the group turned back here, and cycled back to the ferry, via Wetherspoons where they had lunch  ( which we only found out later) whilst the other 3 of us decided to continue as far as West Kirby. For some reason the cycleways on the Wirral are not as clearly marked as in Sefton, and we got rather lost, but at least we weren’t as unfortunate as the car that had driven onto the beach and got well and truly stuck! Hopefully the Coastguard got to it before the tide came in.

Pedal Pushers Wirral Way

This year we have not always been lucky with the weather on a Wednesday, but last week we enjoyed a 15 miles ride along the Wirral Way.  We got the train  to Hooton and then rode back to West Kirkby.  The views were great and Dave IS looking at the views just in case you were wondering!!!!!

Pedal Pushers enjoy the Indian Summer

The Pedal Pushers plus two easy riders took advantage of the unexpected late sunshine today. Cycling along the Cheshire Lines as far as Formby we enjoyed lovely weather and were also treated to an unexpected sight of hundreds of geese feeding on the crop stubble. On our outward ride we were caught unawares and weren’t quick enough to catch on camera the spectacle of them taking flight as they caught sight of us. However, on our return, after a coffee stop on the lovely outdoor terrace of  the Sparrowhawk, we pushed our cycles when in the vicinity of the fields and managed to catch the upward flight. Truly a great sight and well worth creeping quietly along the hedge line! Return distance today just under 16miles, made even more enjoyable by good company and the late summer warmth.

Pedal Pushers – An eventful ride!

In the lovely summer sunshine the Pedal Pushers today set out to ride along the Cheshire Lines towards Formby, cut across to the Bypass and cycle back to Maghull via Lunt and Sefton Village. Little did we know that the anticipated ride was going to be set with problems.  First issue was a  was a mud guard which slipped and had to be removed and hidden in the bushes for retrieval later!
