“So this is the new year? And I don’t feel any different.The clanking of crystal, explosions off in the distance….
…..No more airplanes, or speed trains, or freeways
There’d be no distance that could hold us back.”
First ride of the new year. There’ll be no distance that can hold us back. Let’s celebrate the infancy of the new year by getting on our saddles and climbing some hills. You know, just for a change.
Heading North towards Rossendale via Ramsbottom. Takes in Lumb Carr Road which is a great climb and then we head up Haslingden way on some quiet roads. We work our back down towards the Bury surrounds. We have the sting in the tail with Stand Lane before we take a well earned post ride rest.
