Eight riders joined us on 5th May 2018 for the first of this years Challenge Rides.

Building up over the year, from this 25 mile ride all the way up to 100 miles at the end of August.

We headed out from Springwood, down into Whalley, did the right at the roundabout & immediate left past the abbey, then up to Gt. Mitton, past Bashall Barn, through Waddington, West Bradford and the pull up to Grindleton, then drop down to Sawley and onto the tea rooms at Bolton-by-Bowland where we were made very welcome.

Our return route went back through Sawley to Chatburn, then Downham, Worston, Pendleton, Wiswell and back to Springwood.
