    Default Liverpool Loop Line/Cycle Track (CLC)

    Couldn't find a specific thread for the massive Loop Line which runs from Halewood to Bootle (and beyond?).

    I'll start with a map!

    I was mugged on the loop line aged about 12. Scumbags nicked my brand new bmx, my 'mate' left me and cycled off.

    Anyone remember the story about the 'Clown' on the Ralla?

    Think this could go on on the Myths and Legends thread.

    Did you go down the GreenHill on tin plates in the snow?

    I've been cycling on the Cycle track for about 12 years (I must be tired! ) since I moved closer to it in Childwall, a regular from Childwall to Halewood and back with only a single 'water stop' when I've reached Halewood!

    The approach to West Derby station.....

    You so need to grab a bike and take a trip down there Carrie. It's amazing! I've had some laughs on there, and some scares too. The only daft thing I did was to cycle home from West Derby's Church along the cycle track in the pitch black with no lights on the bike. It's amazingly quiet until you get to the Thomas Lane tunnel and you can't see a bloody thing. You need nerves of steel to try and cycle/walk/run through that at night!!
