Wednesday's Ride Cancelled

Given the horrendous forecast for tomorrow I have cancelled the ride from Burneside. Hopefully some of you may get out with either Ian or Dallas.

Moderate ride 22nd November

The weather forecast looks dire but Dallas is prepared to lead a very much reduced ride if anyone wants one or Ian's ride will be longer depending on the wishes of anyone who turns up.
Rather than wait in the carpark where there is no shelter come to number 37 from 9.30 onwards.

Club Ride Wednesday 22 November

Weather permitting, the ride will start from Burneside Church at 1000 and will be a one stop route heading out to Leighton Moss via Underbarrow, Brigsteer, Burton in Kendal and Over Kellet. The afternoon return leg will take us to Silverdale and Arnside before returning via the Kendal cycle path. The total distance will be approx. 50 miles on predominantly kind terrain.

At the moment the forecast is for heavy rain all day and strong winds. I will monitor this with a view to:
a) go ahead with the ride as outlined if the forecast improves significantly
b) shorten the ride if necessary
c) cancel the ride if the forecast remains unchanged.

I will update this blog tomorrow afternoon when we will have a more up to date  - and hence more reliable - forecast.

Club ride - Sunday 19th November

The ride will start from Greystoke at 9.30am.     Having ridden part of the planned route today I have decided to change it completely.  

The revised ride will be to Keswick, Whinaltter, Embleton and back to Greystoke via Uldale and Hesket New Market.     The distance will be about 55miles.   The forecast is for it to be dry and cold.   Frost is  possibility.    We will make a decision about refreshment stops as we go.  Portinscale and the Whinlatter Visitors Centre are possibilities.

Hope to see some of you at the start.   Remember - it is a 9.30am start.
