SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Club Bike Ride report

A splendid turn out of SROC members gathered for the ride organised by Mike & Mary last Sunday. Glorious June sunshine bathed the scene as the main group departed from Denny Beck at 10 o'clock. A few slightly late riders soon caught the group, and a leisurely pace was set to the coffee stop at Deerslet. After due refreshment there was a three-way split, with some taking the medium route via Beetham, others the long around Farleton Knott and a few with less time to spare taking a roundabout route home. The long and medium groups rejoined on the pier at Arnside (medium group pictured) for lunch. An optional further coffee stop at Leighton Moss was taken by some, while others kept moving and completed the 30-odd miles by mid-afternoon. A very enjoyable outing and a pleasant change, with lots of chances to chat with other riders along the way. More photos in the gallery.
