Quite an impressive turnout for this one, bit of an Autumnal feel to the weather but absolutely fantastic considering the time of year. Another 18 miles clocked up heading out as far as Blackrod via Amberswood & Hindley Green, new one on me I must say.

Heaven help us if everyone ever decides to turn up!

    Wondered why Steve had not booked on the Ribble Valley ride. He mustn’t have got the lock off yet!
