Ride report by Simeon Orme It as been about six months seen I have been out on the bike, so it felt right on Good Friday to have day out on the bike, so heading down the Lune Valley from Halton Station along newly reopen cycle path towards Lancaster, the cycle path between Lancaster and Halton had been close for over year due to building of flood defense wall, the surface of path as much improve seen cycle along it a year ago. I did not have any fix plans for the ride and was following my nose and continue head along the cycle path through Lancaster and on to Condor Green. I stop a few times to take few panorama photos, this involves putting the camera on a tripod and slowly moving camera around to take a number of photos of the view and once get home you stitch together in photo software on your laptop or PC. In Conder Green, I notice that Cafe d’Lune had change its name to Green Finch Cafe but was still closed and after looking on their website they hoping to reopen on 16th April for out door table service and take away. From Condor Green I continue to head along the cycle path into Glasson and then headed through Glasson and stop to take a panorama view from Tithe Barn Hill looking across the River Lune towards Sunderland. (With this photo you do need click photo to see a larger image on your laptop or PC, as the panorama view is made up of 12 difference photos). From Tithe Barn Hill, I followed the bridleway along Marsh Lane to Crook Farm and then the lanes around to Bank Houses and then the public footpath from Bank Houses to Bank End before following Hillam Lane up to A588 which followed in to Cockerham where stop for some lunch on bench near village hall. After my lunch stop, I headed out of Cockerham on Cockerham Road, then after about mile turn on to the towpath of the Lancaster Canal which followed back to Lancaster which was slowly dry out due heavy rainfall the weekend before. In Lancaster I turn off the towpath due to number of folk walking along it and followed cycle path through Lancaster before following the cycle path back up the Lune Valley back to Halton.
