As we now have 20 miles of Cyclepaths alongside the A555
Manchester Airport to Hazel Grove
And the New A523 Poynton Relief Road .
I went for a cycle to Woodford
Cycled from Handforth 1Km to go on A555 cyclepath going West .
Then out onto country lanes.
Blossoms ,Church lane
to pickup the A523 Poynton Relief Road .
(Sir Roy Chadwick Way)
Cycled out to Adlington Golf course Roundabout,then back to a bridge over the bypass.
Checked out the Panoramic views of the Cheshire plain Lyme park ,The Bowstones, and Macc forest
Then headed south off-road on Tracks trails and fields leading to the Old Woodford Airfield .
Came out in an old concrete service road .
To come to the Highlight of my day out .
The Awesome Sight of the Ginormous Massive
Vulcan Bomber ,
One of our Old V-Force Aircraft
on Its Stand
Outside Woodford Air Museum
It made my day
Especially as I've been Interested in Aircraft for years
(Aircraft spotting at Manchester Airport near where I Live )
Had a look around the outside of the Museum and seen an Old Nimrod
Surveillance Airplane .
And noted other Aircraft History .
The Story of Sir Roy Chadwick The designer of the Lancaster bomber .
Then cycled away through Woodford Garden Village built on the Old Aerodrome Airfield Runway .
Back onto the country lanes and A555 cyclepath and home
