Sunday 17th Feb 2019 Four Grupettos met this morning at the Wyre picking up three at Inskip on the way to Whalley through Broughton and Goosnargh against a slight resistance from a fresh South Westerly, then down the long descent to Ribchester. Some discussion arose, on finding the Autisan Cafe full, to locate somewhere else until a Ribble Valley group conveniently vacated a table.
Return up the gradual climb from Whalley over the Ribble Bridge and Gt Mitton then along the humps and dips through Hurst and Knowle Green to Longridge.
Great to get in a few more Winter miles in on dry roads.

Thanks to: Brian, Bill Patman, Bill Hallahan, Nick, Terry, and Tim Jenkins.

Sunday 25th Nine assembled on time at the Wyre for the first 9.30 start of the Winter. Outward bound decided through Elswick and Inskip where Colin and Phil peeled off to Roots leaving Seven to ascend the endless humps from Longridge to the summit of Jeffrey Hill, not helped by an unpredictable North Easterly. The reward was an exhilarating descent to the Potters Barn Cafe in Ribchester where accommodating staff found spaces at a busy time to serve gluten free cake and Red Bush tea.
No relaxing of the pace on the return through Longridge and Broughton.
Bill Hallahan, Terry, Tim J, Nick, Graham, Gary, Gil, Phil and Collin.

Grupetto 28 October
9 of us at the bus stop this morning for the first taste of winter riding after a great summer and autumn. Quick chat and a route to Jubilee Tower was agreed. The route took us through Nateby , Scorton and Dolphinholme before the final climb along Abbeystead Lane to Jubilee. On the way up Les and Nick left us, Les wanting an easier ride and Nick with mechanical problems. Lovely views on the top towards the Cumbrian Fells and the winter sun glistening on Morecambe Bay. Too cold to hang around for long though so a quick descent and then climb up to the Forrest Hiils road and a final descent to Galgate and the Canal side cafe for replenishment. All good at the cafe, nice and warm with plenty of beans and eggs to go round. A nice NE breeze helped us on our back via Forton and Winmarleigh. Good day out again. Tim J , Dave, Len, Jan , Terry , Les , Nick , Brian and Bill H were today's team.
