Witton Park Car Park Preston Old Road Blackburn Lancashire

This ride is only just over 20 miles long, but it has a start that should give us a great fitness boost. The first 7 miles takes us over past Tockholes Village & Winter hill. There are a couple of steep bits in this climb & don't worry if you feel you may prefer to walk these bits - So will I! Once we've done all that hard work we can appreciate some magnificent scenery as we curve over the moors & drop down to Brinscall & from there on to Wheelton, where we'll stop in the village for tea & cakes at the village café. After a well earned rest it's off to Brindle, Hoghton Bottoms, Pleasington & through Witton Park back to the start point. Distance: 20.8 mi Elevation: + 1785 / - 1781 ft Sometimes the rides don't show on the map, so you can see the route map & elevation chart here: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/6642632 We'll ride at a steady pace on this ride and we'll stop on the climbs to reform & let everyone catch their breath We'll keep our pace at a level so that we can all stay together & have a really pleasant New Year ride. 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.
