Day Riders – Leaving Lockdown!

Today 10 riders from M & L together with friends from Ormskirk and Aughton U3A set off in blustery weather to ride to Heskin, Mawdesley and Croston. The weather brightened up as the morning went on and we enjoyed sitting in the sunshine at our brew stop at Delph Quarry. Three electric bikes amongst us had us digging deep to keep up at times as we rode along some lovely lanes in that part of West Lancs. An excellent ride of 40 miles and it was great to reunite with old friends once again.
