Wednesday's ride will officially start from the church in Burneside at 1000. As usual, there will be parking for a few cars on our drive (the road through to Burneside from the A6 has now been reopened). This will be a one stop ride with lunch in Cartmel (approx. 28 miles).
The route to Cartmel will be via Staveley, Crosthwaite, Grange and Flookborough. After lunch we will return via Haverthwaite and the Rusland Valley before getting the ferry to Bowness on Windermere (cost £1 passenger + bike). From Bowness we will return via the Crook road to Burneside for a total distance of approx. 50 miles.
At the moment the forecast is looking good, with temperatures above zero, but if things should change temperature wise, the route out to Grange may be modified in the first instance. As such, I will update this blog if - and only if - changes need to be made.
Refreshments will be available in Bowston post ride.
I hope to see some of you on Wednesday.
