This lad Ben Wright is riding his bike all the way to Australia via the canals and footpaths, he was on his from Manchester to Liverpool when he bumped into me on the Leigh branch of the canal.
So I rode with him and helped him to get is big heavy bike past the
ridiculous canal gates of Ince

This is what he said about Wigan ,,,,,Was looking for a camp site along the canal though was on a raised bank with loads of lakes an ponds along side, no good for camping an soon made Wigan which was an unexpected bonus for today, makes tomorrow a bit shorter. Found a lovely pitch, though a bit close to the towpath, hopefully bike will still be here in the morning, its locked so fingers crossed. One thing I won't miss about the towpath is the array of stupid ******* totally cycling unfriendly gates an obstacles to slow us down. Ok, I accept that mine is not the run of the mill bike but come on.. around Wigan was a nightmare!!!

Looks like he needs a damn good meal inside him, he will be a lot thinner after biking half way round the world.
