50 km Challenge Ride - Sunday 21 May

In bright sunny conditions 6 riders left Whalley on our inaugural 50km Challenge ride.

Since there was no time limit we only got through the lanes as far as Waddington before the group decided on a brew stop at the cafe to review our progress and take a breather before the major climb of the day - the 'Col de Grindleton'.

From Bolton by Bowland the group tackled the long drag to Wigglesworth with fine sunny views of Ingleborough and Pen Y Ghent, with respite at Gardenmakers for lunch.

The nice long descent to Sawley and an ice cream stop at Chatburn was reward for the morning's hard work.

The 6 riders completing the ride were:-

  • Harry Taylor,
  • David Tinker,
  • Tim O' Brien,
  • Peter Catterall,
  • Mick Stone
  • and particular congratulations to relative newcomer Carol Higgins for a sterling and determined performance.

Congratulations to all who took part.
