This could be a case of being Hectored.
Standing around at Boot and Shoe like Billy's no mates wondering if anyone was daft enough to turn out, then all of a sudden Dave Butterfield then Keith turned up and in spite of my attempts at trying for a cancellation we set off for Garstang via the Fleece at Dolphinholme and then J. C. Farms.
We amazed the ladies at Garstang who didn't expect us in the windy condition but as normal welcomed us with open arms( not literally).
Eventually Matt turned up then Ian.
During the conversation Matt and Ian decided they wanted a full days ride so they went on to Roots whilst me Keith and Dave returned home.
Reasonable ride in view of the conditions...
