Sunday, 5th of August - Longsleddale & Ambleside - A bit of both for all ability levels

A ride of two halves, designed especially by Jo MacDonald  for variety of ability levels (new riders are very welcome), starting at Wilf's, returning for coffee / lunch. The morning route will head East on small, quiet roads, and will include some riding on bridleways, and about a mile of walking with your bike, (so no road tyres/ shoes!), then return via Sadgill into Kentmere. This part of the route can be made longer or shorter dependant on ability level of all riders. We might not find a cafe venue in the morning, so bring your own mid morning munchies in case!

We will have a lunch break back at Staveley, so you are welcome to come for just the morning ride, just the afternoon ­ or of course ­ both parts!

We will depart Staveley again around 1 pm, and remain on road for the afternoon section, (we might not be able to avoid some busy road sections ­but route is flexible dependant on group). We will slot in another refreshment stop if required mid-afternoon ­ or just keep peddling, and wind our way back to Wilf’s, possibly over the gated road.

Starts at 9.30am from Wilf’s Café, Staveley for the AM Longsleddale ride, and departs around 1.00 pm for the  Ambleside ride. Distance 25 + 25 miles
