3 bike ride 19th Feb EARLY START

This Wednesday's ride will be as planned though the route may be moderated according to *whim! It may be wet late but looks ok until mid afternoon. I propose therefore since there is no ice around to make AN EARLY START AT 0930 then we may get back before the rain!
Hope to see some of you out - rides have been somewhat of a rarity recently!
* Route -  Salkeld Dykes, Armathwaite, Cotehill etc and possibly come back on the fell side.

MTB Ride Friday 14th

Although it seems there may be a burst of heavy rain around mid-day I intend to go ahead with this ride - however I would appreciate being contacted by anyone who intends to turn out! This will avoid us leaving you behind and also in extremis avoid me turning up and being the sole rider!
The route proposed is shown below but weather, inertia or mutual agreement may yet make changes.
As is it is 36km and 1130m of ascent

Tomorrow's 2-bike ride (Sunday 2 February)

Leaving Armathwaite at 11 am, I suggest we meet on the bridge. I will be driving there and plan to park where I can. The route is an anti-clockwise one, setting off along the fellside and crossing the railway viaduct into Wetheral, turning south and stopping at the Oak Tree Animal Charity for lunch (10 miles approx). The return to Armathwaite is only 5/6 miles so it isn't a long route, but you can extend it by cycling to and from the start from wherever you wish!
