Seven members made it to starting blocks on time, with one member deciding to start from Clapham and join us at Ingleton at the café at Inglesport mentioning no names! Our General Secretary Mr K. should be mention in dispatches for riding to start of the ride from his home yes was something to do with leaving his car at local pub the night before and it was nice see Pat & Fred out with the group again!

Due to cold nature of the day, yes it was freezing and several members will putting in orders to Farther Christmas for new thicker gloves we soon heading out of Bentham at full speed along Bentham Road to the café at Inglesport for warm up and brew, we would have stay in there all day if was not for me saying we had ride to do!

We headed out of Ingleton on Oddies Lane, and then followed the road up to Twisleton Hall then the public byway towards Kingsdale before turning on to the bridleway for the climb up onto Twisleton Scar. At this point Fred and Pat left us to do easier ride they continue along the public byway to Kingsdale before following lanes around to the Tow Scar Road then heading back to Bentham via Masongill and Burton in Lonsdale. The rest of us continue along the bridleway up to Ewes Top then followed the track towards Ellerbeck, we stop for some lunch beside track it was not day hanging about we soon following the track down to Chapel-le-Dale where Charles led the charge back to café at Inglesport in Ingleton.
