50 km Challenge Ride - 20 May 2018

On a gloriously sunny day 11 riders took up our 50k Challenge starting from Whalley.

The ride started gently enough with lanes around Waddington before the shock of having to tackle the only major climb of the day, Grindleton Hill (a few riders commenting that 'it was easier than last time' - such is progress!) A quick swoop down to the Ribble at Sawley and a circuit around Bolton by Bowland took us to an 'al fresco' lunch at Gardenmakers near Wigglesworth.

The directest route back through Sawley and Chatburn (ice cream stop allowed!) saw all riders completing the Challenge so congratulations to them.
