A bit of joy for summer only riders
« on: 02 January 2014, 10:07:26 pm »
I know several guys and galls on here like to wrap thier bikes up for the winter and keep them nice and clean. Nothing at all wrong in that, but I thought I would bring a little bit of winter joy into your world by showing a few photo's from todays ride.
 
Cloud over How Gills Fells
 
 
Swollen River Ribble near Caton
 
 
Deserted road near Lancaster
 
O.K. they are nothing special, but maybe other winter riders would like to join in and bring some happiness to those less fortunate soals  :( .
Happy New Year to all.   :D
 
P.S. My bike needs cleaning now. :\

Looks nice down there. I am thinking of doing a mini tour of that area in the spring. My mate that I used to live with in Sydney stays in Preston, so I might base myself at hers and work from there. Any "must do" roads?

Plenty of good rides from Preston in a North or North West direction. Lake District is only 45 miles away and some good back roads to get there (third photo is one) if you want to avoid the quicker motorway bit.  Very busy in summer months though. Heading Northwest is a good run to the Yorkshire Dales with lots of good roads and less busy. Heading South not so good as you need to use motorways to get past a lot of built up areas in the way before you get to Wales or Peak district.
One of many "must do" roads is the B6479 from Settle to Ribble Head then onto the B6255 to Hawes.

Thanks for the feedback dude. I will pop those in the diary for later use. That road looks fun...
