The fee is £20, with the proceeds going to the Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.
The ride is 78.8 miles and moderately hilly.

Course details here:https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/9495415

The ride starts on the Kirkby Industrial Estate: North Mersey Business Centre, Woodward Road, Knowsley, Merseyside, L33 7UY

I would suggest that those who are driving to the start aim to get there by 8:30 at the latest to allow time to register etc.

If anyone wants to make this a longer ride, a group will be leaving Ainsdale Police Station at 7:30 and riding out to the start. This option makes the ride over 100 miles.
