On a fine bright Spring morning there was a good turnout in the sleepy village square of Great Eccleston for our May ride. We set off through the village and the quiet country lanes towards St. Michael’s on Wyre and on to our coffee stop at the Light Ash Cafe, Myerscough. Fortunately the weather was fine, as it was outside service only.
From there we crossed the A6 at Bilsborrow and left the flat Fylde to climb gradually towards the Bleasedale Fells, admiring the beautiful bluebell woods along the way. We turned left uphill over Oakenclough fell and Harrisend fell, stopping on the top to admire the views across the coastal plain, spotting landmarks such as Blackpool Tower and Morecambe Bay. This was followed by a fast descent down to our lunch stop in Scorton village
