Wednesday 7 th March 2018; Roots Cafe at Catforth

The Siberian weather has subsided - at least for now.
14 riders wheeled up to a sunny Springwood.
Dry all day.
Most had not been on their bikes for a fortnight ( at least that’s what they were saying ). All wanted a steady ride . We chose Catforth - Roots Cafe.
All was good. We stopped at the right turn towards Garstang where decisions were made. Several wanted to ride directly to the cafe. We split.
I headed for the A6 with our leader Harry, John E and Bill. Cloughy had pulled ahead with Chris K in tow. We turned left onto the TT route towards St.Michaels. A very stiff headwind engulfed us.
The back lanes were disgraceful - bumpy, potholed and collapsing. We came across a Lancs Council tar wagon - they were shooting out tar into anywhere that would take it. 🧐🧐
We reached Roots without mishap to find our group had joined Steve and Kaz inside.
There was no sign of Cloughy or Chris !
Kieran arrived - having set off late.
The missing 2 arrived having been on a small loop of their own - and ending up at Myerscough.
Dave Hep and Dave Hargreaves arrived too.
The first arrivals left with our group setting off some 15 minutes later. We took the direct route back towards Longridge, Dinkley and home.
No mechanicals.
Altogether a lovely ride out and back.
Just 50 miles at 14 mph.
