Wednesday's ride will leave Grasmere (Quarry Car Park at White Moss opposite the toilets) at 0930.
The route will take us over Holbeck Lane to Staveley and Winster before we reach Bowland Bridge Stores Cafe for 11's. From here we will climb over Gummers Howe and from Newby Bridge we will head for Coniston via Bouth and Spark Bridge and enter via the east side of the lake. The return leg after lunch will be via Yew Tree Tarn, Little Langdale, Blea Tarn and Red Bank.
The total distance will be approx. 60 miles, with 6000 feet of climbing, so we will aim to ride as a group at a steady pace, particularly as there is potential to get off route if you are off the front.
The forecast at the moment is looking good so hopefully I will see some of you in Grasmere on Wednesday.
