John lead the ride on the 19 April to The Bull in Davenham; there were 10 riders, we left the pond in Christleton in 2 groups as John asked me to wait for a late rider, I then followed John's route out over Roman Bridges to Hockenhall Platts and Duddon and on to Cotebrook for morning coffee where we caught up with the rest of the group and Paul from Hartford joined us.
After coffee we went on through Little Budworth to Marton Green where we joined the Whitegate Way heading towards Winsford turning left as we came off cycleway to Bradford Mill where we crossed the Weaver and headed up the hill to Moulton and then to The Bull in Davenham for lunch.
After lunch we head to Hartford Bridge where we went along a track through Vale Royal Golf club to Whitegate following the the lanes towards Marton where we turned right to follow a track past Newchurch Common; continued on to Gallowsclough Hill where we went into Delamere Forest to the cafe at the Station for afternoon tea. John and Cathy had a large portion of Lemon Meringue pie as they did not have a pudding at lunch. [any excuse - Sue]
We then went through Kelsall and Oscroft on our way back to the pond.
