It was a beautiful but cold day with a stiff breeze blowing when without a map between us Liz D and myself decided to get up onto the hills behind Northop. With Liz leading the route and with a steady ascent to 800ft, we arrived at the top near to the Blue Bell Inn. With a partial descent via tiny lanes, a near miss with a Chelsea tractor for Liz, and large hunting party blocking the lane, we turned up through Soughton towards Mold and the Glas Frynn beckoned for a well deserved lunch. The return was fast and easier retracing our route to Northop then Ewloe and back to Hawarden. I continued back downhill all the way back to Mollington to complete a very pleasant 34 mile ride.
