50 Mile Bike Ride Challenge

More than 3,000 cyclists gathered on Sunday 2 nd July to take part in the Liverpool to Chester Bike ride challenge.

Beginning at the Queensway Tunnel, each participant had the option of completing routes between five and 100 miles long with a record number of entrants signing up for the challenge.

Alsop High School took part in the challenge for the 4 th consecutive year.  Twenty five staff and students were blessed with fantastic weather and perfect riding conditions.

The majority of the cyclists completed 25 miles, Liverpool to the Countess of Chester Hospital and returned by train to Moorfields train station.

Big congratulations to the cyclists who completed the 50 mile challenge - Mr Devlin, Mr Roberts, Mr O’Kane, Paul Blenhaussan, Regan Kneale, Phil Leamey, Harvey Wharton, Luke Smith.  A fantastic achievement.

The full route takes you on a nice loop through North Cheshire, with a half way stop at the Countess of Chester Health Park - where you are able to purchase refreshments - before returning back through Wirral and the Birkenhead (Queensway) Tunnel and finishing at the Liverpool Event Village.
