Ride Report by Peter Kenner

Meeting at the Close Encounter tea rooms at Carnforth Station Simeon and I welcomed Brian Marsh, from Euxton, and new member Norman who`d had a hard freewheel from his home nearby.

The morning was`damp` as we rode via Keer Bridge to Warton and, by track and tarmac, through the Yealands and across White Moss. Following a chat with a couple of mountain bikers, sorting out a puncture, we made for the RSPB cafe at Leighton Moss and had an early lunch.

Rain abated we rode via Silverdale to Far Arnside and took the track through the woods to New Barns. After that it was all road work till Simeon decided on a last track near Borwick. This was `somewhat claggy` and the bikes needed de-gunging at the end. Then we parted and rode off into the sunset.
