Wednesday's ride will start from The Cloisters in Kirkby Stephen at 0930. The route will take us through Nateby and over Lamps Moss and Buttertubs to Hawes, where we will have 11's. From here we will go over Fleet Moss and Cray to Aysgarth for lunch at Aysgarth Falls café. The post lunch return will be on kinder terrain, taking us through Askrigg and Hardraw before the gentle climb over Mallerstag and back to KS. The total distance will be 68 miles.
This will be a very hilly ride pre-lunch, notably Buttertubs and Fleet Moss, where there are gradients of up to 25%, but the pace of the ride will reflect this. The forecast for Wednesday is excellent - warm, sunny and light winds - perfect for a day out in The Dales!
Hope to see you on Wednesday.
