Ride on Sunday 24th February

This grade 2 ride will leave Frenchfield at 10.00 am as advertised. We may have a stop for BYO elevenses at Maulds Meaburn (no big breakfast I'm afraid!) if we can find a nice picnic table in the expected spring sunshine. Then onto the Orton Scar Cafe for lunch. The afternoon ride returns via Shap before dropping down to follow the Lowther valley back to Penrith. About 40 miles at a steady pace.

Stops are available at all the above locations, and will be decided by the group:  we will pass or stop at the Whinlatter  Forest Centre between 11 am and 11.15 am. Either Cockermouth or Uldale are possible lunch stops.  Looking forward to a great day out! Rob
