The ride report by Simeon OrmeIt was not brilliant day for weather but it did improve a bit as I headed down the cycle path through Lancaster and on to Condor Green, from the ground being frozen and low cloud in Halton to every being wet and still low cloud when stop for a brew at Cafe d’Lune.After my brew stop, I continue on the cycle path in the out skirts of Glasson where follow the lanes across Thurnham Moss to Bank Houses, where I follow the short footpath to Bank End there usually some fine views looking across Cockerham Sands from this footpath but it spoil a bit by the low cloud. In Bank End, I was back on the tarmac for short distance, it was interest to see sheep on the embankment when they are usually out on the moss, when done this route in the past. I was soon back on a track as followed the bridleway from Pattys Farm to the A588 which I cross over and follow the lanes around to Moss Edge Farm where I join the next track of the day. I followed this bridleway across Cockerham Moss to Crawley Cross Farm where I was back on the tarmac again and did some road work as followed the lanes into Stake Pool. After looking at map I did short section on A588 before following the lanes across Pilling and Stalmine Mosses to Stalmine where I did another short section on the A588 before heading out of Stalmine on Grange Lane. I soon join Back Lane which I followed into Preesall. From Preesall I headed along B5377 and the B5270 into Knott End on-Sea which last visited about twenty years ago on Lancaster CTC Section ride.I had my lunch near the ferry landing with foggy view of Fleetwood across the River Wyre. After my lunch stop, I headed back through Knott End before following the road to Pilling Lane, then the bridleway to Fluke Hall before heading along Wheel Lane into Pilling where I stop for afternoon brew at the cafe at Pilling Pottery.After my brew stop, I headed out of Pilling via Lane End Amenity Area and soon join the A588 again, I decide to stay on it for next few miles as headed through Cockerham to Upper Thurham where I followed the lanes across Thurham Moss to Glasson then the cycle path back up the Lune Valley to Halton.You can click here to see photos of 15th February ride to Wharfe or you can click here to download the 47.9 mile route or you can checkout the What’s New Page to see what’s new on the site.
