Starting point


I'm Still Thinking Of My Valentine
You - Yes you! :)

Leaving from Frenchwood car park - If you've not been before please check you know where it is & stay out of the car park if your bike is on the roof or you're in a large vehicle as there is a height barrier on the entrance.

We'll ride on the Guild Wheel by the Ribble & up to Scorton for lunch at Daisy Clough and then return South through the picturesque villages using National Cycle Routes where possible.

It's mainly flat with a few small inclines - nothing to worry about - this is as flat as it gets!!

Please be ready to ride by 9.45

I'm Still Thinking Of My Valentine Ride

We'll ride at a steady pace of 12 - 14 mph on this ride and we'll keep our pace at a level so that we can all stay together & have a really pleasant ride. This is a flat ride with a few bumps suitable for road bikes & hybrids with road tyres. If you are unsure of your bikes suitability, please get in touch before the ride.

Please check your bike over the night before the ride, tyres inflated, all bolts tight, lubricated. Clothing, Helmet & lights checked & ready. Please ensure you have all the parts for your bike - pump, spare tube, multi tool. Your bike is your responsibility! Phone, money too. You are your responsibility!
Please aim to be ready to ride 15 mins before the ride start time, getting away on time is good for everyone. It would be great to have some new & some familiar faces on this ride, you're all welcome & I look forward to riding with you.
