A chance to explore the quiet lanes around Parbold, Newburgh, Burscough, Rufford, Croston & Mawdesley. Mixed surface ride using a mixture of quiet roads, country lanes, farm tracks, towpaths etc. May be one or two busier sections of road but only for short distances. Tastebud's Cafe in Rufford will probably be our port of call for a mid-ride coffee break. Lots of scenery to enjoy and fairly flat terrain if that floats your boat.
