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.
Hall moss
Blossoms ,Church lane
to pickup the A523 Poynton Relief Road .
Called .....
(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
Avro XM603
Vulcan Bomber ,
One of our Old V-Force Aircraft
on Its Stand
Outside Woodford Air Museum
Fantastic .
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
Lovely day out pootling nice easy 25 Km
no rain on a nice sunny warm day

That sounds a lovely ride. Can you suggest anywhere we could park to pick up that trail? Coming from north Manchester.

An excellent ride is the cycle path from Manchester to Liverpool, done it several times.
There is also a good ride around the Wirral peninsula.

Thanks franbee .
Part 1.
I assume you will be comeing from Manchester in your Campervan .
Via the A34 comeing South
The Nearest place to park for the start of the A555 cycle trail about
3k away is a little layby off Hollins lane B5166
Near Styal village .
Then cycle North about 1k to pick up at Styal crossroads
the East / West A555 Airport Eastern link road .
From here you can cycle all the Way to the end Hazel grove to the A6
approx 14 miles .
part 2.
Or cycle West also about 6/7K come off after Woodford road A5102 to drop down to traffic lights large Island on your right pedestrian crossing The A555 Bypass going S/W
Crossing to Chester road to pick up
The New A523 Poynton Relief road Bypass
It's on the left for Cycle path .
3K to End roundabout
Finishes at Adlington on old A525.
Across the Roundabout is a Layby also you can park as well .
Part 3
(And Reverse the Cycle ride ,East To West   )
Across from Starbucks coffee cafe
And Travelodge .

Yes Martin I agree
The Middlewood trail is Great for a cycle ride and return via the Macclesfield canal
and there are places to Explore and stop off for Cafes .
Going off the trail at Nelson's Pit
( An Old Coal mining area)
at Higher Poynton
Head up to the Macclesfield canal at the Marina .
Is a nice spot for a Break
At Bailey's Trading Post
A Cafe and has lots of Local Information .
Sitting outside
Whilst watching the Boats go by
Lovely Relaxing place
And take in the Views of the Hills
and Lyme park .
Cycling on to Bollington
village there is
Adelphi mill ,Marina and boatyard
Also a lovely view from the Middlewood way on the Viaduct of Bollington
And The Famous Landmark of White
Nancy
There Is So much Interesting places to See and Great variety of Terrain .
Having Walked NCW (North Cheshire Way)
and Cycled
The Middlewood trail
And The Macclesfield Canal
Over a Many Years
Beautiful Area for Scenery
It's well recommended for Days out
