    Just wondering if any of the many I pass going the other way are on here. You may recognise me as the one who looks like he's in the middle of a time trial :blush::tongue:

    Taking the route of leaving at 7.15 am through Davenport, Cheadle, Gatley Wythenshawe, Altrincham.

    If so give us a wave as nobody going the other way ever acknowledges me :biggrin::sad:
    Me, I'm on a Peugeot 753 or Litespeed depending on weather!!

    I might see you on the Cheadle bit, I guess, but I'm heading towards Manchester. If you're on Manchester Road/High Street or School Hill, they're part of my commute.

    Incidentally, any recommendations for a route into Altrincham? My folks live over that way, and I've often though I might try nipping down on the bike.

    I also cover the Cheadle (Morrisons) to Alex Hospital part of the route, before heading up Manchester Road - Usually 7.45 ish when I pass that bit....

    I'll say hello when I pass you !!!! ;)

    There's times of day I wouldn't do the A56 in a car :smile: I work in Manchester, but live in Heald Green - most of the time it's just easier to say Manchester to people who don't know the area :becool:

    There are times of day when I wouldn't do the A56 in a car - it's usually jammed with traffic. That's why I always do the A56 on my bike.
