This is a Fantastic Idea
I'd like to propose an idea for a "walk" for those of us who can't, or choose not to, walk very far. It's something I do from time to time, although for me it involves a trip up by train. It's based on using the great value Saveaway ticket on Merseytravel, which now costs £4.80 for the day.
I was thinking of silver surfers/pensioners (that's if there are any others here besides me) using our free passes and visiting different parts of Wirral, having a Pub
/cafe meal or packed lunch and possibly having a local wiki member showing us around that area.
If folks are prepared to buy saveways etc - even better
These are fantastic idea's as we await the weather to warm up. The Cover of the Transport train / bus / ferry to stay out of the Elements. A Day out to meet new people and all for less than £5 if your not a Pass Owner. There are Various Tickets Available at any station with the only restriction being that you travel after 9:30am This is a Fantastic opportunity to Relax and make some new friends.Last Summer i done this on my own to kill some holidays and it would have been much more fun on reflection with friends. Its a great way to get out and were all not too far from a train station or bus stop. You get so much value for money with the saveaway tickets and family tickets. What i was suprised at was for about 4hrs i had a fantastic time. Southport walk around packed lunch and there i was home again in 4hrs but a great day out too. As its been mentioned Bus Train or Ferry this is a great excuse to bring members together on a day out. Free to bail out when ever you like (No on a ferry crossing) but if others want to make it a longer day thats fine. But we can go with each others flow.
I want to put together a Ride out to Southport on Sunday 24th Feb.
The Weather will be what it will be but a great day i'm sure of.
