Food producers sign up to take part in Leverhulme Summer Cycle

Posted on 11th September 2019 in Estate News

Fabulous food and drink will be on the menu at the first ever Leverhulme Summer Cycle.


The foodie offer will be led by The Mouse at Brimstage, along with the newly opened Brimstage Courtyard Café.

They will be supplemented by several other local producers who will be situated on the roundabout connecting some of the hidden tracks of the Leverhulme Estate which are being opened up for the leisure ride on Sunday, September 22.

Foodie stands will include independent coffee company Elephant Coffee, the award-winning Chocolate Cellar, Dutch-style chip maker Chip’d and Boysenberry Catering aka the Deli from New Ferry.

Alongside the foodie offering will be stands promoting cycling and the outdoor lifestyle. Leading bike retailer Tracs, based in Delamere Forest, will be showcasing a range of products including the very latest e-bikes.

The Leverhulme Summer Cycle is being organised by Pedalare, which promotes cycling as a leisure pursuit, and Rethink Now CIC, which works with communities to help them consider what changes they can make to improve air quality and their quality of life.

The Leverhulme Summer Cycle follows on from last year’s successful Leverhulme Grand Prix at Birkenhead Park, which saw top-class professional cycling return to Wirral for the first time in over 50 years.

Tanya Leary, a director of Rethink Now, said: “The Leverhulme Summer Cycle takes place on International Car Free Day and is a great opportunity to ride some traffic free routes usually off limits to the public.

“It will be a great day out for all the family, whether you want to ride some of the hidden paths of the Estate or simply sample some of the lovely treats on offer from a range of independent food producers.”

Also supporting the day are Wirral Council, HYPE, Cycling UK and the RSPB.

Andy Mills, a director of Pedalare, said: “We have been delighted with the response to the Leverhulme Summer Cycle and look forward to welcoming families to Brimstage Hall on September 22 to experience the Estate’s off-road tracks.”
