Ride report by Simeon Orme

Five members met for morning brew and chat at the Tearoom at Carnforth Railway Station ( I should point out the all day parking at carpark at the Railway Station is £1.50 at weekends), so after putting world right Ed, Peter and myself set off on the ride, while Nick and Eileen had decide go walking instead joining on the ride. So the three of us followed National Cycle route 6 out of Carnforth and then headed through Millhead, then at Walton we followed ‘B’ road around to Crag Foot. From Crag Foot we followed the road through Silverdale Green and then into Silverdale before heading for Leighton Moss Visitor Centre for lunch.

After lunch we followed the road to Yealand Storrs, there is some good views looking across Leighton Moss from this road. From Yealand Storrs we followed the road through Yealand Redmayne and Yealand Conyers to Walton where Peter left us to ride back to Lancaster via Crag Bank. From Walton we followed the road back through Millhead back to Carnforth where left Ed to ride home through the Over Kellet and Nether Kellet back to Halton.
