    Got in at half ten after a very pleasant and perfectly paced 43 miler out to Wilmslow, took in the airfield and a few big jets roaring off the runway to heaven knows where. I also passed the other side of the airport just as a Ryanair liner hoved in to land. Would've made a great photo but alas, I missed it, and then after waiting ten minutes fruitlessly, I decided I better crack on. Wish I had stayed a while longer - as I got home in the dark anyway, it wouldn't have made any real difference.

    Home straight was the run from Altrincham via Dunham Massey and Lymm - always a firm favourite with flat smooth roads and beautiful scenery.

    Yay! Please stay awhile, O summer.

    I've used that route a few times commuting from Stockport to Appleton Thorn - very pleasant.

    I'll have to give that a go.

    I ride past Liverpool airport several times a week and you get the planes coming in to land right over your head. You can even get right to the edge of the runway here.

    You didn't leave an 11 year old boy behind by any chance did you?

    Apparently they found one.
