Lune estuary - Canal part 2

On Sunday we packed the bikes on the back of the car for another bike ride.

When you're a fourteen year old girl you can't be enthusiastic about cycling with your family.

You find yourself complaining (a lot).

But the path we chose, along the side of the River Lune estuary was nice and flat.

Once in Lancaster, me and my son went into the supermarket for cakes and snacks, to keep us going.

Back on the bikes and we headed for the aqueduct, then finally we got onto the canal tow path.

The weather was gloriously sunny but there was a strong wind
(which could have landed someone in the canal!!)

Going through the City you had to watch out for people, children and dogs.

The temptation to stop for a drink was great but I knew we had about seven miles to go so probably best to stick to bottled water.

Once outside the city the path turned to mud and grass, but luckily less people.

Still stopping for snacks and also the boys had to catch Pokemon!!

Finally we reached our canal junction.

Turning off the main canal we cycled along the Glasson section.

The sun still shone but the wind was trying to blow us backwards!!

At least with locks you get a small down hill, perfect for the tired cyclist.

Back onto the Lune Estuary path with the car park in the distance.

The total for the day was 16 miles. 

On the way home we stopped for an ice cream, to pacify the children then called at my Mum and Dads to look for an abandoned pet rabbit.
