After the first snows of winter on Friday, we were prepared for a cold day. The last two weeks had been a bit of a washout with heavy rain, so with an otherwise good forecast for today, we were expecting a good turnout. Eleven of us set off from Springwood heading down through Whalley, and out along the familiar route to Mitton where after turning right by the church we were pleasantly surprised to find the rough section of road had finally been resurfaced.
Leaving Mitton we headed through Chaigley along the side of Longridge Fell, where a solitary hang-glider was taking advantage of the thermals.
There was just one slight interruption to todays ride, repairing Dorothy's puncture.
After a leisurely lunch in Chipping we headed up past the Bowland Wild Boar park,a dn round to Whitewell before returning to Whally via Cow Ark and Bashall Eaves.
