Wednesday's ride will start from Morrison's car park, Kendal at 0930. There is no problem with parking, but I suggest we park around the rear near Halfords.
The route will take us through Staveley and Troutbeck before we climb Kirkstone and descend The Struggle into Ambleside, where we will have 11's.
From here we will head for Hawkshead for lunch via Grasmere, Red Bank, Blea Tarn, Coniston and Hawkshead Hill. The return leg will take us through Ambleside again, Holbeck Lane and Burneside..
The total distance will be approximately 65 miles. This is a hilly ride with steep climbs and descents with some sections having gradients of 25%.
The forecast is great and the scenery stunning, so I hope to see some of you on Wednesday.
