Subject to weather conditions, I hope to lead the ride as follows : -
Start - Dalston 10:00 to Wigton for 11's Via Carwath - stage Distance about 9.5 miles
11's - Monkey Tree Cafe Wigton ( NOT Port Carlisle as published ) then on to Bowness on Solway via Moorhouses, Aikton, and Finland - stage distance about 12 miles
Lunch - Kings Head Inn Bowness ( or BYO )
Return to Dalston - via Port Carlisle, Drumbrough, Bousted Hill, Thurstonfield, Gt Orton
- stage distance about 14.5 miles
The total distance is about 36 miles ( 58 km ) with approx 1450 ft ( 440 m ) of ascent
If time permits, some riders may like to go round the Anthorn peninsular to Bowness this would add about 6.5 miles to the journey.
I will check that the Monkey Tree & Kings Arms will be open and advise them to expect some riders.
I will place an update to confirm the 11's and Lunch venues are OK.
