Out with the Lancashire Rough-Stuff Fellowship by Joan Marsh My first time out with Rough Stuff What would it be like? With nervous apprehension I set out on my bike To join the crew near Whalley For a 10.00 am depart, I met the ten participants And they really warmed by heart For we all got on together And enjoyed the fellowship, The ride it went round Pendle Hill It was a super trip! The weather so exactly right For a day out on the bike, On and off road we cycled The views were all to like. A welcoming Sadden Coffee Shop An equally delightful lunch Back to Spring Wood in high spirits A friendly, encouraging bunch. It had been a leisurely bike ride With time to look around And enjoy the chit chat It was altogether sound! So you see I am delighted To be a Rough Stuff member And I look forward to another run On the eighth day of September © Joan Marsh , 31st July 2005
