Forest of Bowland Circuit. Sunday 14th October.

Details from Chris Rowley about his ride next Sunday -



If the weather is poor this will be a hard ride of almost  50 miles with two long climbs.  The hills are quite exposed to the weather.   Please meet at High Bentham free car park ( 688694) at 10.00am.  This car park is behind the north side of the main street and can be accessed from Goodenber Road which leaves the west end of the main street.  It is signposted from there.
If you have any difficulty finding this my mobile number is 0777 456 1947.

Car Sharing
If you need, or can offer, a lift please 'phone me at home this week on 01539 732556 and I will attempt to co-ordinate car shares.

The Route.
We ride south from High Bentham across Lythe Fell to Slaidburn  (The Hark of Bounty does morning coffee) and then Dunsop Bridge (Puddleducks Cafe will be open)   This may be a little early for lunch and, since there is nowhere else till Woodies at Caton, sandwiches might be a good standby idea.   After the Trough we ride north past Abbeystead and the Jubilee Tower to Caton.
There is a teashop at Bridge House Farm Wray which we could investigate if we decide not to deviate to Woodies at Caton.  Wray to Low and High Bentham will complete the circuit.
