Wednesday's ride will start from the quarry car park in Grasmere at 0930. The route will take us over Wrynose Pass via Elterwater and Little Langdale. 11's will be in The Newfield Inn, Seathwaite.
From Seathwaite we will continue down the Duddon Valley and head for Torver, where lunch will be in The Wilson Arms. The return leg will be via the east side of Coniston Lake for a total distance of 56 miles.
This is a very hilly ride with long climbs of up to 25% gradient and equally steep descents. However, the descent from the top of Wrynose through Cockley Beck and down the Duddon Valley is arguably one of the best in the UK.
I hope to see you on Wednesday.
