Cycling to the M6

So today was my longest bike trip yet (30 miles) with a round trip to the M6, along the Trans Pennine Trail from Manchester.

Was a fun ride quite enjoyable though the way home was into the wind which made it less fun.

Was surprised at the amount of infrastructure in place including this bridge over the M60.

My new tyres did ok, though they have noticeably less grip in mud which is to be expected. I plan to ride all the way to Warrington (and perhaps even Liverpool) but will need to set off earlier so as to have time once there.

But here is my bike,
