OK, I'm riding into Manchester on Thursday evening from Warrington. To the Velodrome to be precise and i'm unsure of routes/traffic so any adfvice gratefully recieved.
Routemap suggests getting on the East Lancs at Leigh and heading down that, now I know there's a cycle lane most of the way, but where does it end and what's the traffic like at 5 in the evening heading into manchester on there? An alternative is to ride to Lymm and then Carrington, Stretford, but that sounds like an awfully busy route.
The difficult bit I think is going to be getting round the centre, I think, if I go the east lancs route, I just get on the A6, onto Trinity way, round Victoria and then onto Oldham road and get on the velodrome road from there.
