Wednesday Ride Update - RIDE CANCELLED/POSTPONED

As the forecast has deteriorated for tomorrow, with heavy rain and gusting winds expected by mid morning, I have postponed the ride until Thursday when the weather is looking considerably better.
Sorry for the late notice, but there is no pleasure in getting soaked when we can ride on another day.
Please let me know if you wish to ride on Thursday.

Club Ride Wednesday 22 August

Tomorrow's ride will officially start from Burneside Church at 0930. As there is considerable building work taking place on Meadow Close (including our house), parking is unfortunately in short supply this week, but there is parking in Burneside and on the road up from our house towards Staveley.
Sadly I will not be able to lead the ride as I have been advised to rest to allow inflamation to recover, but the good news is that you will have Cathy at the helm and her sense of direction is much better than mine!
The planned route is to head for Grisedale Visitor's Centre via Ambleside and Hawkshead before continuing to Cartmel and Grange for lunch. The return leg will be via Meathop for a total distance of just over 60 miles.
At the moment the forecast isn't looking great, with showers expected from mid morning to mid afternoon. With this in mind, the route may be altered/shortened depending on the conditions.
Refreshments will be available post ride at Bowston, where hopefully I will see some of you.

Bill's 3 Bike Ride Wednesday 15th August

Put on your waterproofs and come join me for a ride along Hadrian’s Wall. We will leave from Wetheral Village Green at 09:30 and make our way via Brampton & Lanercost to Birdoswald (15 miles) for coffee. After coffee we’ll cross back over the A69 at Haltwhistle and continue to Hallbankgate for lunch after a further 18 miles or so.
The total ride as planned is about 55miles, however this can be reduced if circumstances dictate.
Don’t let the weather forecast deter you from enjoying a good day out!
