Short/Medium ride to Morecambe - Sunday 27th September - with Blackburn CTC

For the first time in many years we organised a joint ride with our neighbours Blackburn CTC. Our destination was Morecambe on a glorious sunny day. Some riders started from Blackburn, Longridge and Garstang with the full group coming together in Pilling, making 20 riders in total. We made good progress in flat terrain to Conder Green and then took the cycle track to Lancaster, over the Millenium Bridge, picking up another cycle path to Morecambe for lunch.

Morecambe was quite busy but we enjoyed a ride up the Promenade with fine views across to the Lakeland Fells. We then diverted onto the Lancaster canal towpath and crossed the River Lune by the aqueduct. The group split after the this, the short ride returning to Pilling via Lancaster whilst the medium riders continued to Caton and Quernmore, the Blackburn bound riders climbing Harris End Fell to return home via Longridge. The remaining riders returned to Garstang via Scorton. Altogether a very successful and enjoyable ride – Clarets vs Rovers not being mentioned once!
