    cheers, have emailed leisure lakes but as yet no response, it will be great for me if there is, its only really just past southport, so not too far away at all :D

  • Not sure if it's up to it's old standards, not that I've ever ridden it.
    I think I've read somewhere recently that they have cancelled this years race season here.

    jmeadows, I'm just the other side of the motorway from you, over the Bull Bridge.
    Where do you ride locally? The Lines?

    is this the one labeled as preston, cause they dont have the xc loop anymore
    what are brakes for again
  • Yep it's the Preston one.

    Looks like sticking to the normal rides in the area then eh!

    i think it might still be possible to ride around the lake but it will be just flat

    john climber, yeh the lines, done the canal to the ship 2day then come back on the lines.
    usually do the lines to southport, hit the bypass, through formby, hightown, crosby marina, litherland then back to aintree on the canal, that ones about 30mile with good mixed terrain.
    still waiting for response off leisure lakes with fingers crossed! :twisted:

    Just use 26" tubes as they will fit OK. Or just use a patch.

    When your ready to ride just PM me from my profile. Do you night ride as we go out locally every Thursday from 7pm
