WED 24 th July - Karen's 2 bike ride

Tues 23 rd July at 13:48

Since Karen has had to defer this ride until Wed Oct 9th, I am willing to lead her intended ride on 24 th July.
Lunch will be as designated at The Dunes Cafe Banksmill, but I have not planned the route in detail and haven't decided whether to use the Monkey Tree Cafe in Wigton for 11's since it's not all that far from the Dalston start.

PLEASE KEEP AN EYE ON THE BLOG - I will post full details later on to day.


New Runs List

This is now posted on the website and thanks Mike B and all the volunteers.
BUT NOTE the Ride on the 31st July appears on the top of the August sheet (3rd Quarter) consequently I will remove the 2nd Quarter list on Sunday! Please don't shout! But send me an email or phone if you spot anything that I might be able to change.

Wednesdays coffee stop

Pam, Anne and Rosie are meeting at the Cross Keys at 10 am to ride to Morland for coffee, returning via Fellside, about 30 miles. Others are welcome to join them.

Post Easter Away Week - Ellesmere


We have 20 definites who have paid deposits, so at present down on last year's 24.

Booked are 1 x 8 bed, 2 x 6 bed and 1 x 4 bed  lodges, so 4 spaces still available.

Hopefully these will all be taken sooner or later by payment of £50 per person deposit,

Thereafter I will take names of  any further interested people and if/when we get 4, enquire whether there is another lodge still available.

It does seem to be numbers are dropping each year; if anyone has thoughts why, do please let me or Dallas know!

Wednesday 24 July: three-bike ride; rolling scenic journey with fantastic views

A journey that is full of fantastic views:  the 50 mile route (80 km) has a total ascent of 1500 m.  It starts at Under Loughrigg, Ambleside and heads south through rolling Beatrix Potter country to Newby Bridge. Travelling west, we cross limestone commons and river valleys, passing Bouth, Oxen Park, Subberthwaite Common and the River Crake valley, thereupon reaching Broughton Mill.  We head north up Dunnerdale, passing Seathwaite, Cockley Beck and Wrynose Pass, before descending Little Landgale and finishing at Ambleside.

We shall start at 9.30 am, at Grid Reference 371045, at the River Rothey footbidge that connects Under Loughrigg road with Rothey Park, Ambleside. Yellow single line parking restrictions apply to overnight parking.

Soup, sandwiches and more are available at the Newfield Inn, Seathwaite lunch stop!  Morning coffee at either Lakeside, Newby Bridge, Haverthwaite or Bouth (opening time homework required).  The stop ride split is about 25 km, 30 km and 25 km. Cycle time about 5 hrs, plus stops. See you then.
