Final call for Christmas lunch!

 Christmas Lunch 12.30 Saturday 15th December 12.30

Thanks to all who have booked already and payed, the details for this are all to be found on the earlier blog here (link below).

If you have not booked but would like to attend the lunch which is always very congenial then please complete the form and pay asap as the numbers are limited and I will have to close the lists at the weekend. If the form defeats you IT skills no problem just telephone me with your selections. Special requirements (Gluten Free etc) can generally be catered for, just let me know so I can pass on the information to James.

Alternative Coffee Venue - Sunday 9th December

Betty Ann's Tearoom at Brougham hall has now closed. So I have just made a quick decision and suggest that we use Booth's this Sunday. It may not be ideal but at least we know it will be open! We are looking for alternatives for the 13th January and would appreciate any ideas. Thanks to CJ for noticing the closure of Betty Ann's.

Sunday 9th 2 bike ride

Hello All. Rosie and myself are leading a ride from Lazonby River Eden bridge car park leaving at 10am and going to Talkin Tarn for lunch at about 12. We are taking butties but there is a cafe with a limited selection, as only the downstairs cafe is open. Weather looks fine but cold. About 30 miles.

Cat 2 ride - Wed 5 th Dec

Subject to weather conditions, I intend to lead the ride as published. However if some of back lanes are icy ( as they probably are to day ), I may cut out the routes through sheltered lanes and cut out the 11's stop at Wetheral.  I would take a more direct route to the lunch stop at Plumpton using treated roads or ones with some that have traffic flow in the A6 / M6 corridor. The route planned is 38 miles ( slightly more than published ). I hope conditions permit completion of the full ride and hope to see some of you at the start.

3 Bike Ride - Wed 5 Dec

Hi All
Days are quite short at the moment so I propose to omit the 2nd cafe stop. ie just stopping for 11's at Caldbeck. Bring your own 'on ride lunch time' refreshments. Lights would be a good idea.
Best wishes
