WIRRAL cyclists are being called on to reveal their favourite or most unusual routes for inclusion in a new guide.

It is being compiled as part of a project marking the fourth anniversary of bike hire scheme Bike & Go.

The #MyFavBikeRide Guide will celebrate the best 'off the beaten track' places to cycle in England and Scotland - the two countries in which Bike & Go operates - with the aim of trying to encourage those who rarely use a bike to get back on two wheels this summer.

It could be a tour of the region’s best coffee shops, an 'alternative history' bike ride, or even the best view of the local area from an unlikely standpoint.

It just needs to be as fun and as quirky as possible.

The suggestions will then be compiled into an online guide which will be made available on the Bike & Go website.

David O' Leary, director of the scheme, said: "In the four years that Bike & Go has been operating, our bikes have been used for thousands of bike rides by cyclists of all levels.

"Conversations with our users have revealed that many people like going for a casual bike ride, but need new ideas as to where to cycle to.

"We know there are many seasoned cyclists out there who have a wealth of experience that can be shared with those who perhaps don't cycle quite as often.

"We're appealing to them to suggest some interesting and fun bike ride ideas that will let cyclists experience the local area from a different viewpoint, while still enjoying all the benefits that cycling can bring."

Bike & Go offers bike hire facilities from train stations across much of the North West, North East and Yorkshire, East and South East of England, and Scotland, with more locations opening this year.

Last year the scheme was praised by a UK division of the travel giant TripAdvisor when it was included in a list of the top seven bicycle hire companies drawn up by its subsidiary rental company Holiday Lettings.

To suggest a bike ride, tweet @UKBikeandGo using the hashtag #MyFavBikeRide.

Alternatively, email your suggestion to info@bikeandgo.co.uk by Sunday August 20.

All suitable entries will be compiled into the online guide.
