Hardraw, Hawes weekend March 22-23

An update from Hilary..... 

The Hardraw weekend is going ahead with about 20 members all up, in various locations including the bunkhouse and the Green Dragon Inn

There is still plenty of bunkhouse accommodation in the Green Dragon if anyone wants to make a late booking - tel:  01969 667392 - for the eccentric landlord!  

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.




An update from Peter .... 

Andrew (J) and I are planning to cycle (weather permitting) to Hawes on Friday returning on Monday.

    Crooklands, Old Hutton, A684 north of Killington, Sedbergh, Garsdale, Hawes.
Please let Andrew or I know where you would like to meet up with us.
In friendship to all
Peter (R).
