Southport to Aintree

16 miles (25 km)

This route follows National Cycle route 62 along the Trans Penine Trail from Southport to Aintree.
The ride is fairly flat, mainly off road and includes some lovely coastal scenery and a stretch past Royal Birkdale Golf club at the start. There is then an easy run along a dismantled railway line through Ainsdale, Lydiate and Maghull where you join the Liverpool and Leeds canal taking you to the finish point at Aintree - home of the famous racecourse where the Grand National takes place.
