Come and join me for a ride through the Lakes on Wednesday. Leaving Shap car park at 9:30 we'll cycle to Glenridding for coffee after 20 miles. It is then a further 16 miles or so (over Kirkstone Pass) to lunch at Wilf’s Café in the Mill Yard at Stavely, and then 17 miles back to Shap. Don’t be put off by Kirkstone – the main part of the ascent from Brotherswater is only 2.6km long and we’ll regroup at the top before enjoying a fabulous descent down to Troutbeck.
I hope to see you at the start.
