The Christmas week ‘ Impromptu’ ride offered Thursday Riders a great opportunity to work off those extra calories. The sun was out, the sky blue, but only three riders gathered to enjoy the view from Millenium Bridge. Nick, Tony and Len rode gingerly across the ice-encrusted bridge and headed down the Lune cyclepath for a short ride to Glasson Dock. The frozen mud crunched under our wheels, and the iced-up tree and shrub branches twinkled like Santas Grotto.
A very warm welcome greeted us at the Lantern o’er the Lune café and bistro, where we tucked into scones and ‘posh’ ginger cake before again taking to our wheels to return along the eerily quiet main road to Lancaster and beyond.
All in all, a perfect mid-winters day to be ‘awheel’, and still time to fit in a bracing walk before losing the sunshine.
