R200

Wirral going on a bike ride! This is the Permanent version of the Eureka calendar event, which is normally run in November so it's a chance to ride it again perhaps in better weather. The closure of Eureka Cafe after more than 80 years is a sad loss, but the route has been revised in 2021 and now extends further up the Wirral and visits Nets cafe near Neston.

Highlight of the ride is probably the off-road section from Neston to Saltney. The cyclepath takes you over Burton Marshes, through Deeside Industrial Park (it's better than it sounds) and alongside the river Dee. There is also a cyclepath alongside the busy A5104 to Bretton.

The ride flirts with the Welsh border and you end up changing countries 4 times (which was a bit of a nightmare during Covid restrictions).

The controls aren't open on a 24 hour basis, although you should be able to pick a suitable start time to enable you to validate your ride. Better still, use the E-Brevet and you are no longer reliant on shop opening hours to establish your 'proof of pasaage'.
