Two-bike ride Sunday 16 January

To coincide with Melmerby Village Bakery being the coffee stop, I am planning 2 loops from the village. The first is a repeat of the route a few of us did 2 weeks ago in the afternoon, going towards Renwick with a lovely downhill into Kirkoswald and a few hills on the way back - just under 13.5 miles. After coffee we will take the fellside route south beyond Milburn, swooping down into Kirkby Thore and back via Newbiggin - 18.5 miles. Feel free to join us for either or both or just for the coffee.

Tri-Vets Zoom Meeting Monday 19:00

2022 is Tri-Vets year. To kick off the planning for this event it is planned to have a ZOOM meeting on Monday evening to gauge interest and get ideas for a format.

If you do not know about Tri-Vets then this LINK provides a far better description than I could give within this blog.

I will send an email to all our members with a ZOOM link in next day or 2.

Cheers,

Bill

John R’s MTB Ride to the Red Route at Newcastleton Friday 14th Jan 2022

Bad news I am afraid; the MTB Trails at Newcastleton are closed due to the last Storm blowing large numbers of trees over and blocking the trails. I went to recce the route today and saw for myself the extent of the damage caused by wind low. These trails will not be open for a very long time. 

Rather than cancelling the ride, I will ride from the Swimming Pool at Askham at 1000hrs and cycle round the Lowther Bridleways and thence to Howtown and Martindale, before returning either by road to Askham Fell. Please text me to let me know if you are able to join me and bring something to eat as the Lowther Cafe may not be open.  Regards. John

Ride from Dalston to Silloth Wednesday 12th January 2022

 With highs of 8°c & sunshine forecast, plus the 'longer' days, what better than a ride to the seaside.

Starting at Dalston going via Wigton, Lessonhall & Abbeytown to Silloth. Return Skinburness, Newton Arlosh, Kirkbride & Orton Grange. A 50 mile flattish route, with one refreshment stop at Silloth, at a steady pace.
