3 bike ride Sunday 18th

As per list - 32km to Maulds breakfast then heading towards Orton and Kirkby Stephen and back (101km) or if the weather forces us to moderate the ride it can be shortened to 80km ish. I'm hoping it will be showery rather than intense!

2 Bike Ride on Sunday 18th August

As Runs List: 9.30 start from Frenchfield then 14 miles to Maulds Meaburn Village Institute for coffee/breakfast. Then 5 miles up and over Orton Scar, short refuel at cafe if required. Then return via Shap and Askham. About 40 miles.

Langwathby VIllage Hall Pop Up Cafe 25th August

Sunday 25th Pop Up Cafe at Langwathby to help fund raise for a hall roof. Thought it already had one, but there you go!

11 am to 2 pm if it suits any riders individually or as a group.

A day on the water - Friday 6 September

Yes, yes - we know it's a cycling club, but...

A few people have expressed an interest in trying out our sea kayaks. We have been thinking about this and have decided the best idea would be to set aside a day when everyone can come and have a splash around. We propose to base ourselves at Glenridding Sailing Centre where people can try out open canoes and sit-on-tops as well as our kayaks and Lance and Charles have kindly agreed they will take people for a sail.
Sea kayaks can feel very tippy so we would probably start out 1:1 which means it may take a long time to get through everyone who wants a go, but there will be other things to do.

There will be a charge for the use of the sailing centre of at least £5 – details to be confirmed depending on how much of their equipment we use.
If you are over 5’ 6” or have feet over size 8 please give us warning as it will affect the kayak you can fit into.

Obviously this - as so many outdoor things - is entirely weather dependant and we will blog if conditions are unsuitable to go ahead.

Please let us know if you are interested – email longworth913@btinternet.com or phone 01768 881066
