March 8th. - This was the first of 4 Reliability Rides over the spring and summer and at just 30 miles is the shortest. Starting at the the Range and going via Whitworth, Rawtenstall, Haslingden, Holcombe Brook, Bury and back to the Range with a target time of 3 - 4 hours. Despite some fairly unpleasant weather and the odd mechanical we all made it back in under three hours comfortably. The next Reliability Ride is 50 miles and should prove a bit more demanding I was away for a few weeks in March so I haven't got much knowledge about the rides but I'll give as much information as I can. March 15th - This ride went from the Range through Littleborough, Todmorden and Cliviger to Townley Park Garden Centre for lunch. The return journey took them up the climb from Burnley, over Deerplay and back through Bacup to Rochdale. Total distance about 34 miles. March 22nd - This ride turned out to be a repeat of the Walter Pilkington ride by those who missed it earlier in the month. March 29th - This should have been the 50 mile Reliability Ride but it was abandoned because of the atrocious weather.
