Rufford and Parbold

Punctures and Punctures.  Punctures are the very devil, I think the frequency with which they occurred was due to the poor quality of tyres in those days.  Riding up most of Parbold Hill on a fixed wheel without toeclips on a heavy bike with sit up handlebars would take a lot of doing.

And if you ever climb Parbold Hill do pause at the summit to admire the fantastic view behind you – it is time well spent gazing over the flat lands towards Southport.
