Oh - and pub wise... Stamford Bridge is really nice, but there are a few others in the area as well. The White Lion in Alvanley is good, as is the Goshawk in Mouldsworth. The Bulls Head in Frodsham does a really nice Sunday lunch as well.
Other than the Helsby Arms there's only the Railway actually in Helsby, and I'd avoid that one...
OK - bit of an odd question, as I'm not too familiar with the area.
Mrs O is a great supporter and likes to meet me at various points on a course when I'm running, by biking around. I've had a look at the course map and I can see several points where she can do this but I'm struggling a bit with the last bit between the Manley Lane/Sugar Lane area and the finish.
Is there any way of her getting from that point to the finish without having to back track over the first part of the course (or getting knocked off her bike by runners ) ?
Hi Orbutt. She could follow the course along Manley Rd, but the stay on until Primrose Lane. If she then went down there she'd meet up with the route about 200 yards from the finish.
