Hi all, I'm new to the forum but been stuck in the saddle since I was a kid (I'm 53 now) Back in July I suddenly lost my closest and longest friend of 43 years, he went to bed and simply didn't wake up, he was just 52. I quickly decided that once we knew what caused his passing I'd do a charity ride to raise funds for a charity that supports his cause of passing. Four months down the line we've now found out that it was a heart murmer that had been undiagnosed and had been with him since birth so he could have gone quite literally at any time, not good when I tell you he was a petrol tanker driver! Now we have a cause I intend to raise money for Alder Hey Childrens Hospital and Charity in Liverpool to assist, in some way, research into such problems. Jimmy lived in Ellesmere Port and his local pub was The Wirral Hundred so I intend to ride from Llandudno to the pub (well you have to have some incentive don't you?) My question is; what's the best route avoiding all the major dual carriageways? Ideally I'd like to stay coastal for as much of the ride as I can so do any of you good people have any advice, routes or simply something to add that may help me please? Any comments, advisory, helpful and even downright sarcastic will be happily received with thanks!
