This will be a lovely ride from Whalley travelling through the nearby picturesque villages. From Whalley we'll head up to Pendleton and down to Clitheroe. From there on to Waddington, Grindleton, Bolton by Bowland & round to Gisburn. Then on to Rimington, Downham, Barrow & back to Whalley. We'll stop for tea & cake in one of these idyllic villages.

We'll ride at a steady pace of 12 mph on this ride and we'll keep our pace at a level so that we can all stay together & have a really pleasant ride. This is a lumpy ride from Whalley suitable for road bikes & hybrids with road tyres. If you are unsure of your bikes suitability, please get in touch before the 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.
