Keeping the Saturday morning rides going fortnightly through the Winter months has kept interest simmering until the 25th February Health Ride when warmer, dry weather attracted new cyclists who joined more experienced members of Calder Clarion CC and Wakefield Cycling forum for the ride from The Kings Arms, Heath Common.
The group meandered through Walton Colliery Country Park to the Crofton Cycle Road which bypasses busy Church Hill and Crofton High School. The ride then followed trails through the pleasant landscaped area previously covered by the former Nostel Colliery then around the Lakes in the beautiful grounds of Nostel Priory and back to the magnificent lake and Discovery Centre at Wintersett. Here two riders took advantage of Wakefield Cycling Forum’s Bike Doctor Day where some running repairs and adjustments were quickly made to two bikes. Then a quick photograph and the return leg to Heath through Haw Park Woods and the Barnsley Canal.
