Today 12 riders from M & L U3A and Ormskirk and Aughton U3A met to ride to Prescot. Weather conditions were excellent and we made good progress along the Rainford By-pass. Our usual cafe stop in Prescot was closed due to Covid. Probably the first closure since the war! We found an excellent cafe in nearby Tesco’s and enjoyed a brew in the sunshine. Some nice downhill sections towards St.Helens was soon replaced by a long haul up to Billinge where it was time for another brew at Fir Tree Cafe and a return home via Bickerstaffe to complete this 47 mile ride.
