Please Remember that this will be a buffet lunch at the Blue Anchor PH.
We start from the car park at the rear of the Botanic Gardens, turning onto Balmoral Drive, then Preston New Road up to Crossens Roundabout, turning intowards Banks then around to Mere Brow, over the noisy bridge to Bretherton and the Blue Anchor for our Christmas Lunch.
We will return via Croston, Rufford and Scarisbrick.
We'll ride at a steady pace of 10 - 12 mph on this ride and we'll keep our pace at a level so that we can all stay together.
Remember, this is not a race, but a leisurely ride at a pace to suit the slowest in the group!
Please check your bike over the night before the ride, tyres inflated, all bolts tight, lubricated. Clothing, Helmet & lights checked & ready. Please ensure you have a pump and a couple of spare tubes in case of punctures and a good secure lock.
It would be great to have some new & some familiar faces on this ride, you're all welcome & I look forward to riding with you.
Please arrive at least 15 mins before the ride start time, (10.15) So that we are able to get away at the stated start time
