Parbold Hill Ride: 23miles that turned into 44

I went caving saturday, up in the Yorkshire Dales. I am a member of South Ribble Caving Club, will probably put some caving pics on here at some point. We were underground for about 4hours, climbing, crawling, abseiling etc, this meant that I was hurting sunday morning. As part of the LEJOG training we need to be able to get back on the bike when tired so I went for a ride anyway.
Heres the route:

So good to get out in the sunshine! It was still chilly, there were loads of cyclists about, its a popular cycling area round there. I got the Route from a book called 'On Your Bike in Lancashire', I added on extra miles to get from my house to the start point in Leyland. I had synchronised the route with all its turns to my Garmin GPS which sits on my handlebars. Well I thought I had! Turns out it decided to miss out the last quarter of the return leg home. So I had to wing it for a little while...ha ha.
