Take me Home, Concrete Roads – Sunday’s Ride

About 55 miles with undulations, but intended to be an EV 2.5ish bike grade i.e. 11 to 12mph touring pace.
Starting from chez nous  in Ousby at 9.30 as advertised –still in the throes of our extension so space and hospitality rather  limited as the lounge is hors de combat for a few days more! Sure we will manage cuppas though.
Off we go, chattering away, 20 miles to Orton for  11.30’s.
Meet us en route at Culgaith, Temple Sowerby, Kings / Maulds Meaburn, Crosby Ravensworth  or even the top of Orton Scar if it suits.
15 miles to lunch between the M6 carriageways via Scout Green and over the concrete road (been a while since we did it?) to Haweswater and Bampton Tea Shop  – if we get many for lunch may have to rejig to pub at Bampton or even Shap as tea shop is small and run by just one lady.
Route back via Knipe Scar, Askham, Lowther Park then ad hoc - probably via Cliburn and that nice Centre Parks hill. We can wave at the Bank Holiday inmates ........
