Wet ride to Cobble Hey - 16 April 2017

Two groups of riders left Springwood Car Park at 9:30 this morning (16 April 2017). It was dry (just!).  

Both groups were heading to Cobble Hey for lunch, the medium group taking a slightly longer route through Billington, Ribchester, Longridge and Chipping

Soon after passing through Ribchester it started raining, but being the hardy types we are, we carried on as planned, adding an impromptu brew stop at the Cobbled Corner in Chipping (toasted Hot Cross buns!) in the vain hope it would dry up.

It was still raining when we left, but we carried on to Cobble Hey, to find the riders on the short ride had already arrived, and rows of soggy cycling gloves adorned the fire guard in the hope they might dry out.  Feet were wet and squelchy, but we couldn't do anything about that.

After lunch, and several leisurely cups of tea we ventured back out, to find the rain had finally cleared, giving us a reasonably dry ride back with a nice tail wind.

The medium ride had planned an afternoon brew stop at Little Town Dairly in Longridge, but arrived finding it closed for the day, so we carried on to Bashall Barn for a very welcome coffee before returning to Whalley.

All in all, a good day even if it was a "little" damp in the morning.
