Boxing Day Ride 2010

Well once again snow stopped play so the planned Boxing Day ride took place on New Years Day instead. Nine members managed to shake off hang-overs and late night stop ups to join the ride which started at Waterloo Farm, School Lane Norden. Mince pies and Mulled wine was on offer at the start and a few of the members joined in the festive spirit by decking the horses with tinsel and other decorations. The ride went down Jowkin lane and along to Meadowcroft Mills. All the ice had melted so we had a lovely stroll down the new paths which Rochdale Council kindly laid late last summer. The ride then went up Broadhalgh Road onto the bridlepaths over Rochdale Golf Course and then back down Clay Lane to the start at Waterloo Farm. The weather was kind and although dull it did not rain so a good time was had by all. Pictures are courrtesy of Nigel Morrell. Click HERE for a very brief video
