Fairly hilly for first section until Threlkeld. Weather forecast at the moment is looking like heavy rain/snow showers - it could EASILY get better!
We will start from the quarry car park on the NE side of the A591 at White Moss nr Grasmere. (There are public loos across the other side of the A591). The plan is to go over Kirkstone via Holbeck Lane and Troutbeck with 11's (at around 11.30 am unless conditions slow over Kirkstone) at the Fellbites Café in Glenridding- 18.5miles (in the car park near Tourist Info). From here we will head over Dockray for a lateish lunch stop at Threlkeld Village Hall - 31miles(small café - food service can be slow for groups) although if the weather is bad and the group opts to go straight back to Grasmere for a later stop, we may miss out on Threlkeld as total ride is only 45 miles.
Please can you let me know if you plan to join the group in Glenridding (rather than at the start). This would be helpful as the café can be more accommodating if they have an idea of numbers.
