Since prophets of doom have forecast strong windy and wet weather on Sun 1 st March the ride will follow fairly direct routes and depending upon the weather could be modified and shortened.
As published the intended route will be : -
1 st Stage - Start at Greystoke ( at 09:30 ) to early 11’s at Caldbeck ( Old Forge )
2 nd Stage – Caldbeck to Lunch at Keswick ( Saddleback Café near Pencil Museum access road )
3 rd Stage – Keswick to Greystoke via one of three possible routes : -
a) Cycle track ( old railway ) to Threlkeld
b) Castlerigg Stone Circle , Burns and Threlkeld
c) Brundleholme Wood and Threlkeld
If high wind conditions persist the route from Caldbeck could be modified to travel via Mungrisdale and the A66 corridor to Keswick.
