Bike Touring Highlight
Here on this part of the Loop line after heavy rain for a few days it tends to flood the water comes as high as your feet and there are lots of debris so you must take care if you decide to go through

This morning i cycled on the Liverpool Loop Line, a green corridor through the city suburbs from Aintree to Halewood. It is the old route of the Cheshire Lines railway, which was abandoned by British Rail in 1964. It became quite derelict until 1986 when plans were drawn up for its conversion to a walking and cycling route. Construction began in 1988, and the final section to Aintree opened in 2000. It is now National Cycle Network route 62 managed by Sustrans, and is part of the Trans Pennine Trail. Direction signs for both appear at main access points.

It's nice and flat but not so good on a winters day. The Loop Line passes through cuttings with trees on both sides and can be quite dark even at midday. The tunnels on the line are not lit either so don't wear your sunglasses! That said it is a quick way to get from North Liverpool to the South of the city. Passes a Sainsbury's near Norris Green if you need to top up supplies and goes through the old West Derby station.
