About The Ride
2017 Ride-Out Details
The 2017 Wirral Egg Run will take place on Sunday 18th March 2018. We will be leaving from the dips, New Brighton at 11:00am sharp, so please make sure you’re there in plenty of time. We all meet up along the front of New Brighton promenade, if you’re unsure, head to the New Bright prom, and look out for a few thousand other bikers!
The History of the Wirral Egg Run
In 2013 the Wirral egg run was cancelled. Knowing that many people would still turn up at New Brighton on the day, a group of us decided that we would do something to help, so we tried to gather everyone together under our banner, “Merseyside Easter ride-out with friends of Claire House”.
Police estimated that we had around 1,500 people, we had asked Claire House Children’s Hospice if they would like to collect donations on the day. Unfortunately, due to a problem with licenses, the collecting had to take place in the car park of the Bidston B&Q. However, Claire House collected over £700 within the couple of hours they had at the car park.
On the 27th August 2013, the official Wirral Egg Run committee announced that the Wirral egg run had ended for good.
Our group then tried to think of a way to keep the Wirral egg run name alive, so we came up with a tribute ride-out to honour everyone who has ever helped to organise, take part, or even support the egg run. In 2014 at the usual place, two weeks before Easter Sunday, we all gathered. The ride-out ended at Claremont Farm, thanks to Andrew, this time we had asked for 3 charities to come along and collect donations for themselves – Claire House, The Northwest Air Ambulane & Blood Bikes Northwest (Merseyside).
2017 Collection Results
- Claire House Children’s Hospice collected £2,220 on the day.
- The Northwest Air Ambulance collected £940.00 on the day.
- Blood bikes Northwest (Merseyside) collected £1641.00 on the day.
- British Biker Relief Foundation collected £107.04 on the day.
- T-Shirt and sticker sales collected £284.00
- We collected a total of 1,207 eggs which were distributed to local children.
We are hoping that the charities can do even better in 2018!
So please come and join us for this years tribute ride-out on Sunday 18th March at New Brighton, we set of from there at 11:00am sharp.
The Wirral Egg Run route has been designed to be a fun route, with a variety of roads which allow for fun riding, and also give our amazing spectators a chance to come out and see the many, many bikes that take part every year.
The ride starts off on the New Brighton promenade from 11:00am, we then set off through Wallasey, Moreton, Hoylake, Wesk Kirby, Thurstaston, Heswall, Thornton Hough, and finally Clatterbridge where we all ascend on Claremount Farm.
