I didn't realise how much I missed cycling until I started again the last year or so. Mr. L and I try to cycle together every weekend.
Now I do a bit of road and trail riding. Years ago I used to love mountain biking - the tougher the better ;-) BUT now I'm a real scaredy pants - when does that sneak up on you?
Last weekend we met friends at Gisburn Forest - purpose built cycle trails in the beautiful Trough of Bowland.
Cycling Gisburn Forest
We always have a cafe stop on our bike rides - tea and cake obligatory - one of the few times I am guilt free! Wahey!
Essential bike storage outside Forest Den Cafe.
These beautiful beams were crying out to be photographed. They are in the Cafe - I just love how they are not engineered.

Little known fact...
The Queen actually says she would like to live in the Forest of Bowland if she had a choice!
