With reference to the ride on Sunday 27 July, I’ve been giving this some thought and wish to bring the start time forward to 9.30 at Kendal Leisure Centre.
This will allow a multi length ride for people and options through the day. Pace will be moderate.
In the morning we will head over the Helm and in the direction of Patton Bridge, then heading west, to Staveley – for a break after about 17.5 miles.
Break 1 will be around Wilfs/ Hawkshead Brewery somewhere between 11 and 11.30.
From there we will head south and east, ending up at Sizergh for lunch. Options here are Sizergh Castle tea room; Low Sizergh Barn or the Strickland Arms. This is another 11 or 12 miles depending on which route.
We will head back toward Kendal via Sedgwick, and for people who wish to return to Kendal, the ride will total around 29 – 30 miles by continuing back to the Leisure Centre, arriving back somewhere after 2.00pm
If the weather remains great, and anyone else wishes to extend the route, we will turn east after Sedgwick (off Natland Road), via Crosscrake and Stainton – looping back north via Gatebeck and continue as far as people feel appropriate given weather and time etc before dropping back into Kendal. We may put an afternoon stop in depending on times etc.
People are welcome to join at Staveley or Sizergh if they wish, but please contact me before hand if they intend to do so, so that I know if we need to wait / meet at certain venue / time. (e-mail or text pls)
Huge thanks – hope you had a great weekend – what amazing weather !!
See you soon
