Sunday 2 October

In the absence of a run on the list, I am proposing to start from Langwathby village green at 9.30 am to ride via Culgaith and Temple Sowerby to 11s at Morland. From there, I will go via Lowther and Celleron to Granny Dowbekin's at Pooley Bridge for lunch, returning via Penrith to Langwathby - total distance about 32 miles at a pace to suit the slowest in the group.
Nigel will be with me - at least for some of it - and may do a more ambitious loop between 11s and lunch.
I hope to see some of you somewhere!

Macmillan Big Coffee Morning

Dalston Tennis Club 10.15 -12.00 Friday September 30th

This year I am unable to offer lunch in aid of Macmillan, but anyone in the Dalston area on Friday would be most welcome at the coffee morning. Great tea, coffee, cakes, bakes, scones and more!
The tennis club is by the Recreational Field, signed from The Green. We had the Trivets there in 2010.
If you cannot come but would like to contribute, text JAM9FNT to 70550. Texts cost £5 plus any network charge. Then texting STOP to 70550 will stop any begging messages from Macmillan.
Hope to see some of you there.

Club Ride Wednesday 28 September

Unfortunately Ernest is unable to lead the ride on Wednesday so Geoff and I will lead it for him and it will be as per runs list, departing from the church gates in Sedbergh at 0930. There is free on road parking on Busk Lane.
The route will take us through Garsdale to Askrigg where we will have 11's. From here we will go over Kidstones and Cray via Aysgarth and have lunch in Kettlewell. Our return will take us to Arncliffe and over to Malham Tarn, Horton in Ribblesdale, Ribblehead, Dentdale and finally back to Sedbergh. The total distance will be 75 miles and the route will be quite hilly.
At the moment the forecast is for light rain, but if conditions are grim there will be opportunity to modify the route accordingly.
We hope to see you on Wednesday.

Ride on Wednesday 28 September

Hi Folks

My ride on Wednesday meets and leaves Caldbeck, the Smithy cafe at 10.45am .  As its the last day of the 'Go Herdwick exhibition, Rheged, Penrith ( where the full flock of 108 life sized sheep and lambs, artist decorated are on show ) my plan is to cycle, average pace, via Greystoke to Rheged for lunch and view the 'Herdy's' Return to Caldbeck a different way .


20 years - CELEBRATORY RIDE - Sunday 23rd October

The Clubs first ride ever was on 16th October 1996 so to commemorate this we would like everyone who can to turn out and ride to Orton Sca Cafe. Starting at 10.00 on Sunday 23rd October (the Sunday after the AGM)from Appleby Car Park (not the cloisters this time because of potential numbers?)
We will of course split into groups if numbers are large but the idea is that we will stay in groups cycling at a steady pace until we reach  Orton.(12.00 ish) After a fuel stop there we may like to split up and go our different ways at different paces. So that I can warn the cafe at Orton can you please add your name to the list HERE (click) if you intend to turn up on the day.There will be a choice of route although for the purists the original route went from Appleby to Coleby following the Sustrans route up to Jerusalem over to Kings Meaburn Moulds Meaburn Crosby R and on up to Orton.
