|Great route. I live in Crosby and am new to MTB so this was a great few hours out. I went off course a few times, once off through the sand dunes near Altcar (had to walk it a few times through the dunes) and twice through the forest (they were walker only paths, some of which were permit holders only, but no-one was around so I took the chance).|
I carried on into Southport along the coastal road, had lunch, then headed back.
Clocked 34 miles on my cycle computer, total riding time 3hrs 45 mins.
Really enjoyed it thanks.
