50 m Challenge Ride - Sunday 2nd July

Following on from our 50 km Challenge ride on 21 May, 12 riders set out from Whally bus station on the second of this years Challenge Rides. 50 miles is a good milestone to aim for, especially for new riders with the club.

We were rewarded with another great day out, heading out from Whalley to Waddington the group split into two groups, offering a choice of pace. Passing through West Bradford and the climb up to Grindleton, we headed through Sawley before stopping for a cuppa in Bolton-by-Bowland.

After refreshments, we hit the road again, making for Hellifield, but were delayed whilst Jim chased sheep down the road, and again by a herd of cows out for a casual stroll. After Hellified, lunch was calling so we stopped and re-grouped at Town End in Airton.

After lunch it was a short blast back through Gargrave, on to Gisburn, and back to Bolton-by-Bowland, where the slower group stopped at the Coach and Horses for Ice Cream and drinks.  The faster group got no such luxury, pressing on to Chatburn, but they too couldn't resist an Ice Cream stop at Hudsons. From there it was an easy ride along the cyclepath by the A59 and back into Whalley.

Congratulations to all who took part, especially Andy who had only riden with us twice before on our Extra Short rides.
