These days though i think it might be a rough ride for the drivers.
This terminus firstly needs double yellow lines. The main reason being, at weekends this area is full of the cars of walkers who head up into the Derbyshire moors and once they are gone there is no coming back for hours. I can sense now getting calls to go and reverse a MAN bus around the narrow roads surrounding this area.
And it's not just the terminus thats a difficult drive....
Then there is the turn outside the Queens arms..
Looks simple enough but a 12 metre MAN bus makes it a challenge once more.
Then once you pass this, The parked cars all the way down Manor Park Road make for a tricky head on stand off with 4 x 4s who don't want to stop for buses.
However apart from all this. I think more people will be served by the bus coming this way and that the turning around procedure might be made a little easier. As for the folk who live up at the royal oak well maybe at some point the 390 might head up that way who knows.
Will be interesting times for the people of Glossop though.

place and I didn't have to travel far for it. This is Medlock Valley way I
believe and runs from the Bay Horse at Clayton Bridge to the bottom of Bank
Street. I found it a very peaceful place indeed. Was nice to explore it a
little and will be using it as a cut through from now on. I'm back in work
tomorrow at Ashton. Although looking at the lights set up on the New Road at
the moment I would rather be doing something else!

Starting with a ride through Heaton Park then headed out to Agecroft and
Salford and then ended up in Liverpool, like you do!
I have done this route before and had forgot how boring the East Lancs Road
It all looks the same.
Pictures were a bit boring but here are a few I took including the X2 just
leaving to Preston.
I got the train back with this being my first decent ride of the year didn't
want to tire myself out too much.
Hope the weather improves for more days out.
I'm back in work tomorrow but off Tuesday so I'm already planning my next
ride. Although I know the East Lancs won't be at the top of the list.
