The ride will be as published : -
Start : Dalston 09:30 for 11's at Wheyrigg via, East Curthwaite, Wigton, Woodrow, Parkgate and Blencogo.
11's : At Wheyrigg Hall Hotel, then continue via Blencogo, Langrigg, Mealrigg, New Cowper, Jericho, Holme St Cuthbert, to Beckfoot.
Lunch : At Banks Mill Nursery then continue via Silloth, Skinburness, Calvo, Abbeytown, Lessonhall, Moorhouse, Thornby, Woodhouses, Orton Rigg to Dalston.
Having remeasured distance, it's less than the published 59 miles & is only 55 miles. Depending on weather conditions cutting out the Silloth / Skinburness loop would reduce mileage by a further4 miles.
I have advised Wheyrigg to expect us between 11:00 and 11:30 for Tea / Coffee, Teacakes or Bacon Butties.
I hope to see lots of riders at the start.
