Several of the Pedal Pushers, plus a couple of Easy Riders, met today from various points of Maghull at Robins Bridge, and rode to Scarisbrick Marina, a distance of just over 16 miles for a return trip. The day started pleasantly warm with lovely sunshine, and we cycled along country lanes, admiring the crops watching the farmers bring in their harvests, and sat in the sun at the Marina to enjoy a drink. The Marina was very busy with many boats moored there, along with some very interesting house boats which stay there as a permanent base. Leaving the Marina, we retraced our route through Halsall and Lydiate, keeping an eye on the ominous black clouds gathering in front and to the side of us. Unfortunately we were not able to beat them and were then treated to a sudden downpour with cold winds blowing against us. Thankfully everyone had waterproofs and these were quickly put on. However on returning to our start point and then riding onwards to Maghull, the roads were dry with not a drop of moisture in sight! After the prolonged heat wave we seem to have returned to the usual variable summer weather, where you can indeed get two (or more) seasons in one day!
