Ride from Crook O'Lune to Horton in Ribblesdale, Thursday 19th September 2019.

Lancaster and South Lakes Cycle Touring Club
Talk about the devil looks after his own( can't be the sun shines on the righteous!). Lovely sunny weather promised and a light breeze, perfect for our ride to Horton in Ribblesdale on 19th September 2019.
Off we set travelling along the cycle track to Caton where we crossed the busy A683 to climb over Caton Green to rejoin the A683. Going through Hornby and Melling then just before Greta Bridge a right turn off the busy road took us through Wrayton where we then weaved our way through quiet lanes to our favourite coffee stop at Inglesport.
Suitable refreshed and now not needing directions(there is only one way to Horton unless you fancy pushing your bike over Ingleborough!!) we climbed past White Scar caves to Ribblehead then took the right turn aiming for Horton and dinner. So into the pub for a well earned dinner(well Pen-y-ghent cafe was closed!!)
After dinner the work still hadn't been done so we headed south to Helwith Bridge and the few little bumps on route. In Helwith Bridge we turned right and made the long descent into Wharfe then Austwick. Instead of riding on the A65 we used the cycle path into Clapham then turned up the slight incline on the old road to take the first left to drop down to Newby and across the A65.
Once across the busy road we cycled across Newby Moor(and its bumps) to join the B6480 which took us through High Bentham, Low Bentham, Wennington and into Wray where another coffee stop was called for.
Straight forward from here down the A683 and the cycle track back to Lancaster.
Great day, great company and a mere 65 miles what more could you want( just imagine we could have been stuck behind a desk in an office ugh).
