Wednesday's ride will leave the Quarry Car Park, Grasmere at 0930 and will be hilly. The route will take us over Wrynose via Elterwater with 11s at The Newfield Inn, Seathwaite. The descent from the top of Wrynose to Duddon Bridge via Cockley Beck is well worth the hard climb.
From Duddon Bridge we will head for The Wilson Arms, Torver for lunch and return via the east side of Coniston Lake. The total distance will be approx. 52 miles.
At the moment the forecast is for the possibility of light showers in the afternoon, but the bulk of the climbing will be over by then, and hopefully things will change for the better (ever the optimist!).
Hope to see you Wednesday,
