Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.

Breeze Bike Rides in Liverpool

Liverpool is full of lots of wonderful parks, this is a steady and short ride from Sefton Park through to the end of the riverside Prom, mostly off road or on quite roads. Starting a 6pm by the Avairy Cafe in Sefton Park.


Route Description

Starting at the Eros Fountain, a copy of the one in London, in Sefton Park. The ride goes left past the Aviary cafe, carrying along the main path, when it splits carry on to the left towards Croxeth Drive. When meeting the road turn left to go around the side of the Sefton park, until the Park entrance opposite Livingstone drive, which we cross into, temporarily picking up cycle route 56. To get to the river side prom cross Aigburth road and then carry on straight past St Micheals Station. After the train station follow the path through the small Priory Wood, although it was never a Priory, at the start and end there are styles that we would need to walk through. At the end of the wood, cross Riverside Road into Festival Park.

Taking our time through the park, this is just a small part of the International Garden Festival, then on through to the riverside prom, where we turn left. Cycling on the prom straight ahead, past Otterspool park when we get to the end, at the red bull, have a break and then turn around re-trace the wheels through to the end of Livingstone Drive. Crossing the road and going straight through into Sefton Park, past the drive to the bowling club and back to the Eros Statue and a drink at the cafe.

Please make sure you bring a helmet, especially anyone under 18 years and also a drink if it.  Younger children must be on a BSA approved child seat fixed to the adult's bike, on a trailer or tag-along bike. Older children on their own bikes must be able to ride confidently without stabilisers.

  • Sally Newey
    Sally Newey I'm a recent convert to cycling, I stopped when I was a little girl and then 4 years ago I thought hey 'this walking to work lark is taking too long', so I went out a brought myself a shiny hybrid bike and started commuting. From there followed a desire to go out and cycle for fun, which for me is where breeze came in 3 years. So my main cycling knowledge is I know how to pootle around Liverpool on a bike, and bit by bit other bit of knowledge and cycling language is leaking into my brain. Sometimes I like a challenge and then other times I just want to take it easy.
