Cancelled- Karen's ride Wed 25 January

So sorry folks but once again family commitments mean I am unable to lead my planned ride,leaving from Thursby, on Wed 25 January . Indeed I think that I will be unable to commit to organise and lead any rides until probably April.


Beryl Burton

Rachel alerted me to a Radio 4 programme which will delight anybody who is interested in Beryl Burton.

As Peter Moore's ride is going to Stainton and as they have made us so welcome at Stainton café, I propose that it becomes the official 11s café for this coming Sunday and points will be awarded if you go there.
Best wishes,

Club Ride Wednesday 18 January

Wednesday's ride will start from Burton in Kendal at the Tarn Lane junction at 1000.

This will be a one stop ride, with lunch either at Booths in Garstang (bring your Booths card) or the Garden Centre in Scorton. As it is a circular route, a decision will be made on the day as to whether we ride it clockwise or anticlockwise depending on the wind direction.

The total distance will be approximately 50 miles over predominantly kind terrain. The forecast is looking good so hope to see some of you on Wednesday.

Tomorrow's moderate ride - illness of ride leaders

I am really sorry but neither Nigel nor I will be fit enough to lead tomorrow's ride which incorporated the coffee stop at Morland. If someone else would like to volunteer to lead it, we would be delighted, otherwise it can be self-led. If you are planning lunch at Melmerby, the village café is shut but the Old Village Bakery will be open.
It seems to be that time of year...
Enjoy your ride,
