Disappointment soon followed as we got to the Independent Labour Party's tearooms to find that, not only were Steve B and Nigel not there, but even worse, there was no water, which in turn meant no steaming pint mugs of tea so we had to settle for washing our pork pies down with a glass of milk as we sat round the coal fire chatting to other disappointed comrades including former West Pennine man and Falcon professional Alan Mellor.
Once again mild and dry - how long can this last? - a highly recommended Tour of Pendle.
39 places booked for the Wednesday Club Christmas do at the Stubbing Wharf - doors open at noon - turkey being served just after 12.30
Cragg Velo's Jonathan Emberton has organised the 1st ever 'Cragg Vale Spiral', a 75k ride starting from the Robin Hood at 9am. It includes three ascents of Cragg Vale with 3 different returns to the foot of the climb. Its free to enter and there's pie & peas available (and a pint) at the Robin Hood at the finish.
Meet 9.30am Denholmgate, 10am Keighley for shortish ride and cafe stop before having a look in at 'Riley's Treat' at the Pecket Well, Robin Hood.
