With Covid scuppering our annual Christmas Lunch last year, we were looking forwards to a good ride and meal today, and we weren't disappointed.

Seven riders turned up for the ride at 10am, starting from Rolls Royce Social Club in Barnoldswick, for a short ride out for coffee and toasted tea-cakes at Gardenmakers before returning via Bolton-by-Bowland for our Christmas Lunch at 3pm. We even got to meet Father Christmas along the way.

After the meal, we concluded the day with the presentation of the Jack Harrison, and Bill Heywood trophies, This year, the Bill Heywood trophy being awarded to Chris Marshall for his work over the years as our Rights and Planning officer, and the Jack Harrison Trophy, awarded to Jim Duerden for leading the points competition with a whopping 240 points!. Congratulations to both.
