Distance - 7.9 miles

Plenty more iconic sights on our next route along the River Mersey. Beginning on Otterspool Promenade, you’ll set sail along the Mersey towards the docks amongst boats and kites before veering back round to the tranquil International Garden Festival.

From here you’ll head towards Sefton Park, looping around the boating lake before returning to your starting point in Otterspool Park – so why not finish your ride with a picnic by the river?

Cycling on the towpath is a great way to get around, or just explore and find new villages, towns or places of interest. The Canal & River Trust is responsible for around 2,000 miles of towpath, and 50% of the population live within five miles of one! Joe Sammon, Canal & River Trust
