Five riders took part in this medium ride with some fairly easy miles to start via Ribchester (pausing at the River Ribble to watch the canoeists prepare to enter the water) then up to Longridge and back lanes to Chipping. We then climbed up through Little Bowland past the Wild Boar Farm and a swift descent to Burholme Bridge and to lunch at Dunsop Bridge Village Hall - great sarnies, cakes and a vat of tea! We chose to return via Whitewell, Bashall Eaves, Waddington and Chatburn. No massive hills today but enough to keep us interested and feel we'd had a good ride. 53 miles in total so congratulations to Gary and Peter for their first 50 mile+ rides!"
