Saturday started off better than I thought with the weather, so although I wasn’t planning a ride, I couldn’t resist the sunshine.
Up from Scout Road to Walker Fold, then took the left hand option uphill, it’s a really technical climb, we only ever came it once before, so first time up. Then up to the mast and down to Two Lads, had a look at “Hole Bottom” on the way, you can see the old brick kilns , or rather where they were, I don’t think many people know where this is and what it was a long time ago. You can fid out a lot more about Winter Hill HERE.
Then down to Georges Lane, from Two lads. Came down the Ice Cream Run at the fastest speed yet, normally ride very slowly and normally fall off, but faster seems better, my GPS said approximately average speed of 10 miles an hour, which if you know the ICR, is not bad.
Back via Lower Barn, full of riders and other day trippers, easy ride home again
21 miles in good weather and warm temperatures.
Sunday’s ride cancelled due to bad weather.
