Metrolink Trafford Park Line – Trafford Wharf update

It’s been a while since there’s been an update on the progress of the Metrolink Trafford Park Line (TPL). There’s been nothing new published since a number of planning applications appeared on Trafford Council’s planning site back in January. Though preparatory works have been continuing along the route.

I’ve now received the final drawings for the Stretford public realm improvements, as well as the Stage 2 Road Safety Audit. In keeping with the whole consultation, these have only become available after work has already started and don’t appear to have been published anywhere or shared publicly.

HSBC UK City Ride Manchester – July 2017

With the news last year that the sponsorship deal between Sky and British Cycling was ending, there was some doubt about whether there’d be any more city rides in Manchester. Once British Cycling announced the new deal with HSBC, it became clear the event would be coming back. Continue reading “HSBC UK City Ride Manchester – July 2017”

Netherlands 17: The route to Leiden

In my view, no stay at Duinrell is complete without a trip to Leiden. We’ve been there plenty of times and I’ve covered the route previously in 2015. Though it deserves another post, as there’s changes on the way and we chose a different route on the way back. Continue reading “Netherlands 17: The route to Leiden”

Netherlands 17: The route to Wassenaarse Slag

2017 saw us back in Duinrell for what was our seventh visit. I’ve covered Wassenaarse Slag previously in a post from 2015, though that was the route from The Hague. This time we were heading there from Duinrell, with five families in total, and with seven adults and six kids getting there on bikes. Continue reading “Netherlands 17: The route to Wassenaarse Slag”

Netherlands 17: Around Amsterdamsestraatweg

For our week in Utrecht, we stayed at an apartment in Zuilen, which is about 2.5km to the north west of the city centre. Our apartment was located directly on Amsterdamsestraatweg, which is one of the main routes into the city, particularly for cycling. Continue reading “Netherlands 17: Around Amsterdamsestraatweg”
