100km Challenge Ride - 14 July 2019

A mix of regular riders from our short and medium rides, and two new riders set out today from Whalley on our annual 100km Challenge Ride.

Heading out via Billington, Dinckley and Ribchester, along familiar roads to Longridge, and then through Broughton and Inskip to our morning brew stop at Bonds in Elswick.

We then continued to Great Eccleston and duly paid our 20p's at Cartford Toll Bridge. Then on towards Hambleton and the Wyre estuary, which we followed north as far as the road would take us, before detouring slightly inland for the final leg to our lunch stop in Knott End.

The cafe was really busy today, which delayed our return trip along the coast to Pilling before turning south-east through Stakepool and Garstang.

Once across the M6 we headed through Claughton and Whitechapel before a final - very brief - stop for Ice Cream in Chipping.

Congratulations to all eleven riders who took on the Challenge, your certificates of achievement will be presented at our annual Christmas lunch in December.

Total distance covered: 69 miles.
