At last the forecast is such that I can be confident to announce the ride is on! Leaders have had difficult decisions to make for quite a while now and we should be grateful that they have been prepared to take on the decision making responsibilities. We will not have to cross sections of road where you need four wheel drive as in the photograph below which Bill O and I encountered at How Hill near Lamonby on Wednesday.
The route on Sunday will be 42 miles composed of 10 miles to coffee at Dirty Harry's at High Hesket on the A6, a further 12 miles to Talkin Tarn followed by 20 miles back to Dalston. Even though it is Mothering Sunday I'm not expecting our stops to be particularly popular for treating mum but the pace will be suitable if you want to bring her along.
You are welcome to tea afterwards.
