Ride report by Simeon OrmeAfter getting my number one bike during the week, after it had been for service at The Edge Cycleworks in Lancaster, I decided to take it out for ride and followed the cycle path from Halton Station down the Lune Valley through Lancaster and on to Condor Green where stop for brew and cake at Cafe d’Lune.It well worth getting the bike service, it was like riding new bike and had one comment from fellow cyclist outside Cafe d’Lune asking me if riding a new bike.Anyway after finished my coffee and cake, I decided I did not want go back the same way, so I headed through Condor Green and followed the lane to Galgate.After crossing over the A6 in Galgate, I headed through Galgate and passing the old mills which looks there some redevelopment work of the old mill buildings going on and then followed the lane towards Ellel.From Ellel, I continue up the Condor Valley, following Langshaw Land, then Kit Brow Lane and then Long Lane into Quermore.In Quermore, there was a bit climbing to do before getting to main and only crossroads in the village before heading out of Quermore on Rigg Lane which soon turn into Postern Gate RoadAt Postern Gate Lodge, I turn on to Quermore Road and headed towards Caton where got back on the Lune Valley Cycle path and headed back to Halton and I was quite surprise that I had done around 20 mile in few hours of cycling.You can click here to see photos of 2nd November ride to Roeburndale or you can click here to download 19.9 mile route from Halton Station or can check out forthcoming events page.
