Yet more pics from our Welsh Borders weekend. A land of gastronomic contrast - the most expensive tea cake (£3.25) and the cheapest Sunday roast (£4)
Reid Anderson By contrast, Dave the food on offer on todays Sunday ride was a bit in the middle - pancakes with maple syrup plus coffee (Holden Wood) was £6.20 and beans on toast plus coffee (Rivington) was £5.40. But it was very good, as was the service, so I will enter the two venues in Cyclists Welcome. I take it that you will not be doing likewise for the £3.25 tea cake establishment. Nothing to do with you being English, was it ?

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.

Ian Scott Thanks for the ride Reid. 63.8 miles for me on the short morning version! First time I've cycled that way.

Reid Anderson Thanks Ian and everyone who braved the rubbish weather this morning and came out on a ride to places most had not even heard of, never mind visited ! Hope you enjoyed the experience and the refreshment stops at Haslingden (Holden Wood) and Rivington (Village Tea Rooms). 63 miles is pretty amazing for a short morning ride - I only managed 84 miles - with a 6.15 finish at Mytholmroyd. Thanks again to all who came out today.
