Today's ride was along Middlebrook Valley Trail to Lostock, then up to the top of Beaumont Road, Markland Hill, Walker Fold Lane to the bridleway and then to the top of Winter Hill. The weather was superb, warm dry, sunny and almost no wind, visibility was great from the top. Very few people on the top, but more on the Pike.
From the top I dropped off the steep side down towards the Belmont Road, but turned left to the Pigeon Tower, then back to Bob's Smithy via George's Lane, back home by the Valley Trail.
Front tyre developed a large bulge,so new tyres tomorrow, the old ones have done about 2,500 miles.
Total Distance 22 miles
