Getting There

Hillside train station is a 5 minute walk to Southport Rugby Football Club. 

If travelling by car, please use the postcode PR8 4QW. 

On-street parking is available in the surrounding areas. Please be courteous when parking in residential locations to not block the pavement or our neighbour's drives. 

Please take note if the no parking sign is on the entrace to the Rugby Club, as space is reserved inside the grounds for a large gantry and you will not be able to park near it.



The route will be easy to follow and clearly indicated the entire time with arrows. Our Cycle experts will also be guiding at the front and back to make sure nobody gets lost. 

If you do require an electronic version of the route, please email [email protected] to request one. 



Don't forget, participation in Cycle of Hope holds a £30 minimum sponsorship. This can be raised via your Enthuse online fundraising page that was created when you signed up, collected using a paper sponsor form, or paid directly to the Charity on the day of your cycle.
