Ride report by Simeon Orme

This is one of those ride reports that did have time to do in the week after ride or I was doing something more important to do and now writing 12 months after the event.

So after climbing out of Halton and then following the lanes across to Nether Kellet, I  then followed Back Lane out of Nether Kellet down to Carnforth. After making my way through Carnforth, I followed the public byway into Warton, then then lanes through Crag Foot and then across Leighton Moss, then stopping at the Leighton Moss Cafe for my morning cake and coffee break.

So after my morning coffee break, I followed the lanes through Waterslack, Hazelslack, Storth and Sandside, then short section on B5282 of about mile to Milnthorpe Bridge.

Once I crossed over River Bela via Milnthorpe Bridge, I then followed Marsh Road across Milnthorpe Marsh to the A6 which I stay on for the short section around Levens Halls. I soon left the noise of the traffic on the A6 and followed the lanes through Levens, soon turning off the tarmac to follow the bridleway up to Church above Brigsteer where I stop for lunch on bench, with some fine views looking down into the Lyth Valley.

After my lunch stop, there was a bit climbing to do, then short section on Brigsteer Road before following the lanes passed Briggs House Farm and then down to A591.

After crossing over the A591, I followed the lanes down into the Kent Valley, after crossing over the River Kent via Hawes Bridge, I headed into Natland.

From Natland, I followed the lanes through Sedgwick and then to Hincaster.

From Hincaster, there was short off-road section on the Hincaster Trailway, then soon back on the tarmac, heading through Woodhouse and then Ackenthwaite before following Hang Bridge Lane into Beetham where stop at Tearoom at Old Beetham Post Office for my afternoon coffee and cake break.

After my afternoon brew stop, there was short hard climb through Slack Head before following the lanes down and pass Hale More Farm, then off-road section across Thrang Moss and White Moss, then heading along Nineteen Acre Lane to the A6.

After crossing over the A6, there was more quite lanes as I headed through Cinderbarrow, then another off-road section along the Lancaster Canal Towpath down to Tewitfield.

In Tewitfield, it was back on the tarmac again as headed along Kellet Lane through Over Kellet before following the lanes back to Halton.
