Home or Away

ferry 'cross the mersey

Went ‘away’ for a couple of days over easter, ‘home’ to visit the parents. Took Angela on the ferry as she’d never done it before, which was nice. Did lots of shopping, looking at the views (that pic was taken from the other side of the mersey, which i though was quite impressive), bought nothing and ate lots, as i think you’re supposed to do in these situations.

On Sunday myself, steve, rich, duncan and julia did the 3 towers ride, which was made even better than normal by (mostly) dry trails and nice weather. Even though it’d been a fair few months since i last rode most of those trails they still felt like a second home and it felt as if i was showing people round something i owned rather than some random trails miles away from my house…

Can i just point out too that this pic is the first time i’ve ever caught someone actually on the moment of landing. It wasn’t a particularly heavy landing, but it does make you think about what the bike has to go through underneath you…


  1. is the ferry terminal supposed to be underwater? :O

    Nice to see you on sunday, I’ll do the 3 towers sometime.

  2. not really…you could tell the pilot wasn’t used to docking at the other terminal as it took him a good few goes to get close enough to dock

    …cue about 100 scousers looking up at the him shouting “caaam down fella” and offering their opinions on how to park a boat 😮

    yes, you should do the 3 towers, it is a great ride

  3. Oh is there another terminal now? I have no idea, but that other one looks a little broken / damp 🙂
    I expect it’s all a lot less minging down there than it used to be.

  4. they’re using the isle of man terminal at the mo’, which is a bit of a shame seeing as they’d done up the “normal” terminal not all that long ago

    i imagine it’ll need a bit of a wash when (if) they re-float it, after being at the bottom of the mersey
