UpFront gallery is closed 16 to 29th January

For revised coffee stop on Sunday, please see the blog. As I had devised Sunday's ride around UpFront being the coffee stop, I may now do something completely different - will blog again when I have decided the new route.

Tomorrow's 2 bike ride

See below for details of Geoff's ride.
There are no changes from the plan for my ride tomorrow; I still have some Eden Rivers Trust routes to try out and I propose to try out a route around Talkin Tarn, meeting at coffee time, setting off around 12 and returning for lunch. According to their website, the café is open Saturdays and Sundays through the winter. The route is approximately 12.5 miles and has a bit of ascent (!) including a hill with one arrow so it will be great for the feedback forms (family friendly routes?) - although completing these is optional. I will be driving to the start; others can cycle there but it is due to be cold overnight so take care on the roads. John Roelich has kindly advised me that there is a parking charge of £2.25 for the day. I hope some of you can join me.

Ride from Greystoke Sunday 19th

As blogged earlier here are the details of the ride starting at Greystoke Car Park 10am:
68km and 1060m of ascent - so hilly but not too far!
We will stop at Ulldale - Maes cafe for lunch after about 43 km (about 1330 - 1400)
Do come and enjoy what should be a glorious sunny day out! It may be quite chilly!

2-bike ride on Sunday 19 January

In the absence of an entry on the runs list, Geoff has already advertised a 3 bike ride (see below). I still have some Eden Rivers Trust routes to try out and I propose, on Sunday, to try out a route around Talkin Tarn, meeting at coffee time, setting off around 12 and returning for lunch. According to their website, the café is open Saturdays and Sundays through the winter. The route is approximately 12.5 miles and has a bit of ascent (!) including a hill with one arrow so it will be great for the feedback forms (family friendly routes?) - although completing these is optional. I hope a few of you are able to  join me.
