Inaugural Larkling Ride to Longnor
Numbers fluctuated on the Larkling ride today but included Mike, Kirsten, Mark, Simon, Ian, Rachel, Lucia, Brian, Phil with Sue and I leading the ride.
With a great turn out we set out looking for something more challenging and this ride certainly delivered with 1370m of climbing and brutal 👿 winds. I clocked 61km and 14.6 km/h (38 miles & 9.1mph). We diverted south down the A54 to avoid the fog/side winds/traffic on the Cat & Fiddle road. Then down past Crag Hall to enjoy a lovely sheltered spin up Wildboarclough to re-join the planned route at Bottom of the Oven. Great ride, really enjoyed it and thanks for positive feed back so far - more welcome in comments. (Any negative feed back please private message Sue or Chris).
Thanks Chris for planning a great route and encouragement and for Brian for support and everyone’s enthusiasm in the face of less than ideal cycling conditions. I hope others will come forward to lead these rides as Sue & I can not commit to every week.
