Rideout to Glasson Dock

Myself and Helen went on a rideout with NUKB to Glasson Dock today. It was bloody cold today and very windy, we encountered temperatures of -2°C over stocks reservoir.

We met up with the majority of people at the Tickled Trout at 11:00am. It was a really good turnout considering it was so cold. Debs led us to Glasson Dock via Broughton, Inskip, Hambleton, Pilling and Cockerham. We arrived at around 12:00pm and met a few other new faces there and had a Coffee and Twix to keep us going.

My VFR @Glasson Dock Quite a few of the group left us at that point, the remainder of the group headed over to Devil’s Bridge via Quernmore and Caton. On the way up to Devil’s Bridge we encountered a few snow flurries here and there. We decided to head home after Devils as the snow looked like it was coming in.

Bikes @Glasson Dock There were a few bikes up at Devil’s Bridge but as usual the arrogant car drivers had decided that they would park in the weekend bike only area. Helen decided to vent her anger about this to one unlucky 4x4 driver that obviously can't read signs and blocked his exit from the carpark, she eventually moved and let him on his way. As soon as he was at a safe distance from us he produced the finger to us, not sure what his young daughter would of made of that. Maybe he will think twice about parking there next time but I doubt it. We then got a cup of coffee and some bacon butties and then jumped on our bikes leaving everyone else except Debs at Devil’s Bridge.

We proceeded home via Ingleton, Clapham, Gisburn Forest, Sawley, Clitheroe by-pass, Simonstone and then got onto the A56/M66 and arrived home just before the snow flurries came again.
