Ride report by Simeon OrmeI head down the Lune Valley Cycle path from Halton Station into Lancaster, then along St. George Quay before following the cycle path from Lancaster towards Condor Green, meeting up with Peter Kenner part way along, we soon stop at Cafe d’Lune for a brew and chat, we were the first customers of the day.After our brewstop, we carry along the cycle path into the outskirts of Glasson and then followed the lanes across to Bank Houses where we follow the footpath around to Bank End Farm and continue along the shoreline following the bridleway from Patty’s Farm around to the A588 which we cross over and then follow lanes through Great Crimbles before heading along the bridleway through Lathwaite coming out on the tarmac again in Winmarleigh where we stop to look at Winmarleigh Horse by the church for few minutes. It started to get a bit wet, so we did a bit of road work as we headed for Pilling and the delights of the Cafe at Pilling Pottery where stop for some lunch.After lunch, it had got a bit drier, we headed out of Pilling following the lanes across Cockerham Moss, then the A588 into Cockerham where I said my goodbyes to Peter. From Cockerham I followed the lanes into Forton and misjudge a section of road and end on back side. After patch my self up, I decide to head along the towpath along side the Lancaster Canal through Lancaster which is nice route at this time of year with all the Autumn colour in deep cutting. I came off the towpath at the Lune Aqueduct and followed the Lune Valley cycle path back to Halton.You can click here to see the photos of 24th October ride to Leck 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
