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

For those of you coming from the Wirral and surronding areas, we shall meet at the Seacombe Ferry Terminal at 9.20am, the ferry leaves at 9.40am and we need to be on this to pick up the rest of the group at the Pier Head at 9.50am. The best value ticket is a saveaway (cost £4.80 return) and we can purchase these at the terminal.

Today our ride will take us from the Liverpool Pier Head to the Famous Anthony Gormley statues in Crosby. Ther ride will take us along the Canal path of the Leeds to Liverpool canal, through the Meadow Fields Park and onto Crosby.

Another Place consists of 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread out along three kilometers of the foreshore, stretching almost one kilometre out to sea. The Another Place figures - each one weighing 650 kilos - are made from casts of the artist's own body and are shown at different stages of rising out of the sand, all of them looking out to sea, staring at the horizon in silent expectation.

The work is seen as a poetic response to the individual and universal sentiments associated with emigration - sadness at leaving, but the hope of a new future in another place. The artwork was previously displayed in Cruxhaven in Germany, Stavanger in Norway and De Panne in Belgium. In November 2006 the statues were expected to move to New York but it was later decided that they would remain on Crosby beach.

The canal path is all flat but we will for most of it travel in single file (all together as a group) and takes us all the way from the city centre to Crosby.

There are a couple of places to eat and get a warm drink in Crosby.

If you need to ask any questions please call me on 07729 114055 or email me at Breeze.sarab@gmail.com

Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part.  If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then.

Look forward to seeing you there!
