Westward to Lymm

The weekend has been fantastic, but it wasn’t until at least 2pm today that I’d had a chance to contemplate going out for a proper ride. There were a couple of things that needed to be tweaked on the Planet X and after popping into Harry Halls to speak to Simon I had some highly recommended Specialized Roubaix bar tape to fit too. As I was fettling the sky darkened and you could hear the rumble and crackle of thunder, but the rain that was threatened never arrived and I headed out.

I’ve been wanting to explore the Transpennine Trail westwards for some time so I rode down to Chorlton and picked up the Mersey. After a few false turns I was on track and heading towards Altrincham. At Dunham Massey there had clearly been a lot of rain and the dusty trails turned to mud. After slogging though the mush I decided by the time I reached the edge of Lymm that I’d ridden far enough and wasn’t going to push on towards Warrington so took the road home.

A good bit of exploration that opens up more options for the next ride…
