CTC Weekend cycling in the Welsh Borders. Quiet roads, great views, good company.
Eddie Lloyd The one with the moss down the middle is the A 459! It was a remarkably easy ride, a few hills but long and steady, nothing in the the Shibden wall or trooper lane league! More like the bottom of Cragg Vale!

Ride details for Sunday 28 August. Sunday's ride is along the Lancashire Cycleway (NCN 91) across the West Pennine moors to Rivington. Sounds a bit cycle touristy, but actually the route has some roadie influence; the coffee stop (Haslingden, 19 miles, say 11.00 hrs) is at the Holden Wood tearoom frequented by the Yates twins when on training rides from Bury; the lunch stop (Rivington, 32 miles) is at the Village Tea room, located on the route of the 2002 Commonwealth Games road race and time trial.

It is a lovely ride across some delightful moorland scenery and through pretty settlements like Chapeltown and Belmont. Part retraced but most of the return is along different roads including the classic Edenfield - Rochdale "Owd Betts" route. Once over the top of this not particularly hard climb the last 25 miles of the full 75 mile route are flat. Those who do not want to do the full route can leave us at Holcombe Brook (3 miles after the coffee stop) and return by the Edenfield - Rochdale route.

Meet Mytholmroyd Community Centre at 8.45 for 9.00 start. Thanks.

Thanks to all who came out on last night's ride, 9 in all. We called it just right in view of today's inclement weather. Talking of views, they really were stunning. We're very lucky to have them on our doorstep even if it does involve a little climbing from time to time. Love that Big 6!
