So rode home from Willslow via Manchester airport an enjoyable ride and means that I have know riden the whole of the Manchester Airport Orbital route in two sessions.

The southern side of the route has a lot more cycle lanes but runs alongside the road so I think I prefer the eastern and northern part of the route which has more country lanes on it. Having said that there was a pleasant surprise between Roaring Gate Lane and the A560 along an unsurfaced road which was much nicer than following cycle route 85 through the south of Wynthenshaw.

Finally finished off the ride by rejoing route 85 and getting to carry the bike over lots of motor bike obstacles and finally picking up a slow puncture around Chorlton Water Park. Managed to get some air from Ken Fosters Cycle Logic which got me home but it is time to think about tyres as picking up a lot of punctures.
