Sunday 3 November - two bike ride
Does anyone want to join me in a loop from Melmerby to Abbot Lodge (11.30s) on Sunday? My plan is to set off from Melmerby 9.20 am to get to the Langwathby station (via Ousby and Skirwith) at 9.53 in case anyone wants to join us by train from Carlisle. Then via Culgaith, Temple Sowerby and the Cliburn road another 12.4 miles to Abbott Lodge (just under 19 miles) A similar distance back to Melmerby via Penrith, Beacon Edge, Langwathby, Winskill/Hunsonby and Gamblesby. Pace will be very moderate as I am very out of practice. I will be having lunch at Melmerby Village Bakery if anyone wishes to join in. Return trains from Leeds to Carlisle leave Langwathby at 1440 and 1637. Anyone welcome for all or part of the ride.
