Walk and Ride pre AGM Saturday 22 October

 Pam says.....

I'm planning on putting on WALK pre AGM lunch on Sat 22nd October leaving Langwathby village hall at 10:30am. The plan is to do Ladies Walk, less than 3 miles, mostly flat around river Eden then undulating to Eden Hall & back to village hall for lunch.
All welcome to join in,  even those not going to AGM!

Nigel says....

I am happy to lead a ride  from Langwathby Village Hall 10.00am to Plumpton for coffee and back. See you there.

New Touring Site may be of interest

I recently had an email from Ian Yarroll:

I've just set up a cycle touring website - it's based on various bikepacking and touring journeys that I have made over the last few years in Europe and the UK.  It contains practical info and resources which I hope will help others to plan trips - it has not been set up for any commercial purposes

If you feel this might be of interest to your members I'd appreciate it if you could forward the website link to them

many thanks, Ian 

When I say touring perhaps touring off road might be more appropriate! This is certainly not about the back lanes of France on a road bike!

With no main ride scheduled for Sunday, I intend to lead a moderate ride following a figure of eight route, starting from Langwathby Village Green at 0930 hours. The first loop will head out to Temple Sowerby and Kirkby Thore, then onto the fell road through Milburn and Skirwith to Melmerby for 11s.Following 11s  the first loop heads back to Langwathby [total 25miles] before heading out over Langwathby Bridge and taking a route to Stoneybeck, Catterlen and Newbiggin en route to Stainton Cafe for lunch.

After lunch the route returns via Blencow, Unthank, Plumpton and Salkeld Dykes and back to Langwathby [second loop 31miles]. Total distance 56miles.

Members can chose to do as much or as little as they wish!
Hope to see you on the village green on Sunday.

EVCUK AGM on Saturday 22 October

Only 4 of the current Committee members are standing for re-election. We are delighted to have volunteers for the posts of Treasurer and Runs Co-ordinator, but anyone wishing to put themselves forward would be most welcome. In particular, Nigel would like to relinquish the position of Newsletter Editor if a replacement can be found, although he is willing to remain on the Committee in another capacity.
Please see Geoff's blog of Sunday 25 September and click in the appropriate places if you wish to join the lunch on the Saturday or the anniversary ride on the Sunday. Look forward to seeing you,

Hello - just a word of warning - the café was closed on Sun 11 September and due to re-open under new management by the end of the month. I haven't checked whether it is open again.
