• the A556 Lymm turnoff between the M56 and M6 is not bicycle friendly any more.
  • the A34 where it crosses the M60 heading to East Didsbury from Cheadle is not good – the B5095 is better. Also going to/from Wilmslow, South of the M60, the old Wilmslow road B5358 is a lot more cycle-friendly than the new A34 bypass.
