This is the 18th year of the Wirral Bikeathon, supporting Bloodwise, the new name for the charity Leukeamia and Lymphoma Research. The Mayor of Wirral will be invited to start the ride in the company of Chris Boardman, our local Patron, and to encourage the entrants on their way through Arrowe Country Park towards Caldy, the Wirral Way and the first 14 mile section of the 28 mile route.
Back at Arrowe Country Park, in the start, mid-point and finish area, riders will be treated to cold drinks or hot refreshments were available thanks to the Red Room Cafe while enjoying the lively music of the Peninsula Jazzmen.
Thanks also go to The Bike Shop (Moreton) and K-Cycles of Eastham who continue to support us by providing bike repair services in the park and at Dovepoint on the prom in Meols. See below for the many other organizations who we also wish to thank profusely for their valuable support.
