After meeting at the Denny Beck car park the five of us including Geoff a new member headed up the Lune Valley cycle track towards Caton, just before Bull Beck Bridge we cross over the A683 and follow the lanes through Brookhouse and Caton Green before joining the A683 which we follow for about mile through Claughton before following a nice white road through Farleton before rejoin the A683 for short distance. We soon turn on to the B6480 and then after about mile we follow our usual route into Wray via Back Lane which is nice bridleway, we headed through Wray Village to the Tearoom at Bridge House Farm where Nick order his second breakfast claiming he till hungry and had no food at home, as he and Eileen had just back on Saturday evening from week skiing in Norway.
