Yeah I know! I was only joshing. I used to ride a pushy to work when I was in the bank. I can remember a memorable ride home one Friday night after drinks! :winker:
Can't have been too many drinks if you can remember it.  :mrgreen:

Good point, I only remember bits of it! I remember an even more "memorable" stagger home once... where I kept pinching and reading peoples junk mail to keep myself amused! Strange thing is, I'm not much of a drinker!  :eek:

Latest bike ride yesterday.  Train to Garswood near Wigan.  Cycled to the Leigh branch of the Liverpool to Leeds canal and cycled along the branch through the Wigan Flashes.  The Flashes are lakes made when the land sank due to the coal mines in the area.  Joining the canal at Wigan Pier then cycled back towards Liverpool passing Appley Bridge, Parbold and Burscough. Came off at Burscough then cycled to Ormskirk for the train home.  Just a few photo's as done this route before and posted pictures.

Decided to try a new route today. 

The route took me behind Liverpool John Lennon Airport. 

According to my cycle app there is a track around the airport perimeter on the River Mersey side which takes you from Garston to Hale, some 6 miles.

Got 2 miles into the track and a sign saying the track had collapsed and to use and foreshore for 200 yards.

Taking the detour i tried to rejoin the track but it had been overgrown so back to the foreshore and did this for 4 miles.

I should have just gone back and taken the road as i went through soft sand, mud, long grass, pools and even paddled in the Mersey!

Eventually ended up at Hale.

Hale is known as the home of the Childe of Hale, John Middleton (15781623). Legend tells that he slept with his feet out of the window of his small house.

According to contemporary accounts and his epitaph, Middleton grew to the height of 9 feet 3 inches (2.82 m).

Few photo's.

I've started cycling to work everyday in a bid to get fit, but people say it makes me look gay.


So, to macho up my image a little bit, I've drawn some racing stripes on my basket.

Latest ride yesterday was around Cheshire.

Starting at Winsford, took the track along the River Weaver/Weaver Valley to Northwich then headed towards Delamere forest for lunch.
Took the Whitegate trail back to Winsford, disused rail track for some 6 miles.

Enjoy......
