Current weather forecast for Boxing Day is set fairish with a bit of wind. Sooooo, as i haven't organised anything for ages does anyone fancy a meet up and a bit of a rideout on boxing day. Main aim is a social meet to show off Christmas jumpers and other farkles.

Three possible rideout routes depending on weather and how we all feel All start at the Tickled Trout Service Station, J31 M6 at 10.00 for a 10.30 departure. There's a cafe, fuel, cashpoint and a decent shop there now.

1. A Bowland meander. Take in a couple of passes with a stop in Slaidburn for more socialising before heading to Settle. For even more chat. Then back roads from Settle in the general direction of Preston so peeps can peel off home. There's the possibility of several green lane diversions - not for me but I can show people where to go. No idea of conditions though.

2. Fylde Coast wander. If the fells are too misty skirt the western flanks of Bowland on minor roads before heading to the coast at Glasson Dock (Cafe hopefully) then onto Knott End (another cafe). Return to the tickled trout via minor Fylde roads. Only a couple of green lanes I know of this way.

3. Bowland Loop. staying on B roads or minor roads wherever possible a full lap of the Bowland fells - Longridge ...Clitheroe ...Settle(cafe) ...Bentham ...Wray (cafe)...Garstang and back to tickled trout.

Each run will be 100+ miles, so back to tickled trout mid- late afternoon. I am assuming all the usual cafes will be open.

I will be posting this on ABR andXT660 as well.

Austin,
Would love to ride, BUT ...... I'm on duty at Bebbinton on an RRV on a 9 - 9 shift so I cannot attend apologies.

HAVE A NICE DAY !

Wednesday is a shooting day for me. Then I am back to work. Looks like this is turning into a family day out - me, wife, both boys and their girlfriends. The petrol and lunch bill is going to expensive. :).
