Starting point


Starting from Longridge we'll go in a clockwise loop through Wittingham, Broughton and Greater Eccleston before looping around to enjoy lunch at the Barn in Scorton, a great lunch venue at around the 27 mile point. Make sure you have a snack with you to get to this point. After lunch we'll take the flatish route back, keeping the Forest Of Bowland on our left and having a look at Beacon Fell, because we'll be going up there some time soon - but not today. This will be a beautiful ride through some magnificent country. We'll ride at a steady pace of 11-12 mph on this ride and we'll keep our speed at a level so that we can all stay together & have a really pleasant ride. 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 all the parts for your bike - pump, spare tube, multi tool. Your bike is your responsibility! Phone, money too. You are your responsibility! Please aim to be ready to ride 15 mins before the ride start time, getting away on time is good for everyone. 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. I'm a SkyRide Ride Leader leading guided rides & I'm also a trained route planner - I enjoy my cycling & appreciate it even more when I have people to ride with. Our group is called the FC's - Friendly Cyclists & you can read all about us & join the group here: Let us know a bit about yourself & what rides you like to do.
