“I used the 1017 from Piccadilly last Saturday, which was full and standing from Stockport.
“The conductor had trouble persuading kids to put their bikes out of the way – there were about 10 and they were going to Delamere.
“I have seen increaing numbers of people using Delamere for cycling. Often there’s more than 2 on a train, and most of the conductors seem to do their best to fit them in.
“However, I would never risk taking my bike on a train in case I was stranded.
“I can foresee conflict with Northern’s policy of only 2 bikes per train (emphasised in the latest timetable leaflet) and Merseyrail’s aim of getting more people to go there and their no limit on bikes policy.
“Are they talking to each other?”
