When I want to make up some miles, but not with too much effort I do the air port run. Its off road all the way to Manchester Airport. Full circuit around the perimeter on the Aviation Bike Trail. Well that’s exactly what I did today, perfect weather for it.
Its 54 miles in all, but not much climbing, the route follows Cycleway 55 to Monton, then Bridgewater Canal past the Trafford Centre/ Down to Stretford, running the gauntlet of the super aggressive Canada Geese. Then Sale Water Park, Chorlton Water Park, Wythenshawe Park, Painswick Park and then the airport.
The Aviation Viewing Park is now free fro bikes, so had my breakfast there. Had a look in the Trident and photographed the Nimrod before setting out back home. A nice 54 miles in the sunshine and super dry and dusty trails.
