Saturday 18th August Day Ride-out - North Pennines & Back
Following a successful trip yesterday & a communications error, I am running a full day ride-out on Saturday 18th August.
We will be meeting at the Morrison Car Park at Kendal (far side of the petrol station) for an 8:30am briefing. Aim to leave at 8:45am in order to get breakfast on time.
Breakfast will be at the Langwathby Station Cafe (they have agreed to open up for us so I need a good turnout....). This will be followed by a slightly longer than normal stint to our lunch stop in Barnard Castle. Route will be via Stanhope & Wolsingham. WARNING - if you eat at the "Teesdale Restaurant & Tea Shop", they do VERY LARGE portions - ask Haggis Dave about these.
After lunch, we will be heading to "The Creamery" at Hawes for the obligatory ice cream and cheese tasting/purchasing. On leaving, we will head over to Horton-in-Ribblesdale, Austwick and end the ride at Devil's Bridge, Kirkby Lonsdale somewhere around 4:oo-4:30pm (hopefully). Timings are approximate and depends how long you want to stop at each point and as usual, traffic/road conditions.
This ride is suitable to all levels of rider and open to Associates and Full Members alike. Please post on here if you plan on coming as I need to let the Langwathby Cafe know how many to expect.....
Attached is the route for those who want to see it and/or load it in to their satnavs (sorry, I don't have a suitable satnav file....)
Cheers, for now, Strap-On Dave
Thanks all who joined the ride- even those only able to manage the breakfast.... Had a great day with great company. Sorry for the diversions and various route changes. Hope you all enjoyed the ride home and sorry to Rudy for losing him at the end. Thanks to Rudy for TEC'ing forme as well.
