Ride report by Simeon OrmeHaving miss going out on bike the weekend before due to storm blowing over the British Isles, I was keen to get out on the bike and the weather had improve over night to make this possible, the ground was soaking from to much rain and there flooded sections of road where you would think it would flood in hundred years, it maybe wake up call for our politicians to do some about the climate.The main point of the ride, was to go out have play with the two tripods that bought, after it was point out to me that not all of my close up photos of flowers were in focus, so end up buying a Fositan Professional Camera Tripod CT-S1 which strap on the back of my saddlebag as came with its own storage bag and Fotopro flexible Tripod which found was okay for close up landscape format photo but not okay for close up portrait format photo due to weight of the camera. So end up buying Neewer M521 (Table top) tripod which would recommend to any cyclist in to photography as it’s pack down to small size.I did not sent out e-newsletter, as there was nothing to report and I had not been out on the bike the weekend before or added anything to website, so there no point in sending it out. So did not think their would be any pigs flying over the Refreshment Room on Carnforth Railway Station when I got there, I followed my usual route from Halton to Carnforth, when got into the Carnforth the Kellet Road close to motor traffic due the footbridge across the Lancaster Canal being replace.Its not often you see Andrew the owner of the Refreshment Room in on Sunday, he said something to do with exam season for some younger members of staff. After my brew stop, I followed my usual route out of Carnforth, crossing over the River Keer via the foot and cycle bridge near Hagg Wood before following the public byway into Warton.From Warton, I followed the tarmac through Crag Foot and across Leighton Moss before headed along The Row where spend quite a bit time playing around with the Fositan Professional Camera Tripod trying to take few photos of Snowdrops and daffodils. Also playing around with the settings on the camera to see what work for me when using a tripod.I stop for some lunch on bench near Bank Well.Time was getting on, so I headed out of the Silverdale area, following Storrs Lane through Yealand Storrs to Yealand Redmayne. I headed out of Yealand Redmayne on Nineteen Acre Lane, I soon cross over the A6, then headed through Cinderbarrow and followed the tarmac through Priest Hutton and on to Borwick where I had another play with the camera and the tripods on the village green. I did get some good results with the Fotopro Flexible Tripod in landscape format but with weight of the camera it was useless in Portrait format which tend to take most photos in (The portrait photo on website give the viewer a larger image to look at! Where the landscape photo is limit by how wide the size of web page the web master is using and usual get smaller image to look at!)Once finish playing with the camera, I headed out of Borwick on Borwick Lane then soon turn on to Kellet Lane which followed through Over Kellet before following lanes back to Halton.You can click here to see the photos of 1st March ride to Wray or you can checkout the What’s New Page to see what’s new on the site and you can also sign up for site’s free weekly newsletter.
