Back via Elterwater, up past High Close, drop down to the beach at the south end of Grasmere, explored some of the new cycles tracks and over bridge, along trees and river and back over the new bridge and up to the caves. The descent down is rocky and testing, then back along the lanes to Ambleside and more coffee and cake to end. A great ride out on FATTIES, even the damp mist could not dampen the spirit.

Many of you will know the long standing KDCS member Jack (Ellerby) who has asked me to ask you to consider sponsoring him on his forthcoming LeJog. Also please put in your diary that Jack has invited us to join him on all or part of his ride through Cumbria on Sunday the 3rd August.
Lands End to John O'Groats sponsored ride July-Aug
Dear personal and work FriendsHaving some time on my hands in between finishing at Friends of the Lake District (end of June) and starting self-employed outdoor work in September, I thought I’d do something useful and raise some funds with my good mate Steve for charity. Please sponsor us and pass these links onto your friends and contacts to see if they would like to donate to a good cause. Steve has a facebook page which can do something else which is beyond me, but some of you might know what to do!Very best wishes and here’s to a dry spell as we cycle 1045 miles (and visit some of you on route!).MS Society donations:http://www.justgiving.com/Steve-Gaskell1Friends of the Lake District donations:Jack Ellerby

If anyone wants to join us for rides on the day, please turn up at the Old School Bunkhouse (first building on left coming into Hardraw) or at Green Dragon, for 9.30am on Sat or Sunday.
I plan to set off between 9.30 - 10am depending on how long it takes everyone to have breakfast .... the weather etc. We will have a group evening meal at the Green Dragon on Saturday night - all welcome to join in.
Rides are planned to be;-
1. Down Wensleydale to Castle Bolton, over hill to Grinton and Reeth for lunch, back up Swaledale and over Buttertubs - approx 40 miles.
2. Out of Hawes and over Oughtershawside to Cray (White Lion Inn) then Bishopdale to Aysgarth, back up Wensleydale. Revised versions if weather is bad.
Please note: I am the co-ordinator of this trip - but not a 'leader' as that has lots of implications for liabilities in case of accidents etc, everyone should be aware of and responsible for their own safety.
