5 Mile Family Tunnel
Families are invited to take part in the Liverpool Chester Liverpool, one of the only cycling events in the UK to feature such a long underground stretch, with the added bonus of being guaranteed to stay dry throughout the tunnel section! The ride starts at Old Haymarket on the Liverpool side of the Birkenhead (Queensway) Tunnel, and allows you to cycle traffic-free right up to the toll booths in Birkenhead, then back through the tunnel to the finish at the Liverpool Dock Branch Exit, facing the world heritage site of the waterfront and the Royal Liver Buildings.
The tunnel ride is one where the whole family can take part and is perfect for those who are not yet ready to venture out onto the open roads, as it allows riders to experience the atmosphere of the tunnel under the Mersey without the worry of cars driving past them.
The ride will start once the cyclists on the longer routes have left the tunnel, giving families the time and space to enjoy the route.
