Campaigners are highlighting the plight of a flooded cycleway in Wirral as the borough prepares to host a national bike race.
Angry cyclists say the perimeter track around Bidston Moss is blocked by a lake that has been growing in size since before the turn of the year.
Wirral has been trumpeting the arrival of the OVO Tour Series for professional cyclists on May 21 as well as hosting a stage of the Tour of Britain in September.
But nothing has been done to resolve the blockage at one of the area’s premier scenic routes.
Cyclist Barry Turner 58, from Seacombe, said: “You expect a bit of flooding in winter but a small pool has been allowed to grow into something resembling a lake. You can actually see vegetation growing underneath the water, it’s like Wirral’s version of a coral reef.
“Unfortunately no one seems to taking responsibility for this. It affects walkers as well as cyclists. Every time you go along there – which I do less and less – you find people grumbling.”
The track at the rear of Bidston Tip links on to Route 56 of the national cycleway.
The flooding appears to have been caused by a drainage issue on nearby land managed by Network Rail. Forestry England, which is responsible for the Bidston Moss land, says it is working with Network rail to try and find a short-term solution.

Its the water table level and not the fault of where the cycle track was laid . Plus the original funding had no long term future plan once the money had run out .
Complaining about a crit race around price street will not get your message across.

They could have pumped the water into the dock by the Penny Bridge, Oh wait, they filled that in didn't they! its bad enough for road users when the road floods near the roundabout, never mind outside the entrance to the tip, and this road was resufaced less than two years ago?
I remember when they had the gaints down on New Brighton prom last year, they removed some bollards and post, came out and repainted the yellow lines and road markings so it looked nice for the TV, so far they still haven't replaced the bollards or posts!

On the contrary my friend - highlighting a cycleway problem when a major event is taking place is THE time to do it.
