Sefton Park and Riverside Circular

Out for another bike ride today and I've found a much better route that runs to just over six and a half miles without lots of to-ing and fro-ing in Sefton Park. It still takes in both Princes Park and Sefton Park, and adds in a lengthy ride along the bank of the river. It's the first time I've been along that stretch of the river - the marina and housing is all very nice but it's just one huge soulless housing estate isn't it? Are there any shops or things that aren't houses or offices down there?

I think there's a gym - but yes it is totally soulless and desolate. The cliff means you have to travel round a long way to get anywhere too. And then cross the horrid along-the-river main road.

While theoretically a nice place to live, I ruled it out for those reasons. Plus it's not exactly climate change adaptation proof, being right down by a river near the sea.

How do you use @merseyshipping to know which boat is which? I also want to name the ships when I go along, but didn't feel knowing when they left/entered the river helped me when further along.
