We are planning to start from The Cloisters in Kirkby Stephen at 0900 on Saturday to watch the race at the bottom of Buttertubs in Thwaite, where the riders will be swinging sharp right from the descent and head towards Muker.
The idea is to ride over Lamps Moss from Nateby via Keld and have coffee at Kearton Country Hotel in Thwaite. I have spoken to the proprietors and been informed that they are setting up an outside service (with tables) selling food and drinks. I have also spoken to the Police and they do not envisage traffic problems on our route.
Given the scale of the event I would still recommend you bring your own food and drink for lunch as we cannot guarantee any venues.
