No – you cannot use either Tunnel to get to the start or to return home to the Wirral by bike following the completion of the event. Please use the Ferry or Public Transport.
If you miss your allocated start time your last available slot to ride through the Tunnel is 09:30. After this time you will NOT be allowed through the Tunnel due to Health and Safety reasons as infrastructure will be re-assembled.
There is not a Chester – Liverpool – Chester route for this event. You cannot return back to Chester using the Tunnel – you will need to use public transport or the Ferry to return back to Chester.
For this event, we recommend using a road bike. However, as the event is all-inclusive, adapted bikes, electric bikes and other legal bicycle types are also permitted to ensure an all-inclusive experience.
