Ride - Sat 7th Feb Start 10:30 at Milnthorpe

Route proposed for Sat 7th Feb 10.30 start Milnthorpe
Milnthorpe, towards Holme, then narrow road to Farleton. Around the N of Farleton Fell, then climb up to Hutton Roof. A little more up hill before we drop via Keerside to Arkholme in the Lune valley. Then Gressingham and the Loyn bridge to Hornby. There is a tea shop there, but I need to check opening times. The fallback is the Greenfoot garden centre in Wray which has a tea shop. Back over the Loyn bridge and Gressingham , then a climb before we drop into the Keer valley, Capernwray chapel, Borwick and through the lanes to Holme Mills and Milnthorpe.Est 30 miles.
This can be extended by returning through Warton, the Yealands and Beetham. Not many options for a shorter route, except to the Greenlands farm teashop at Tewitfield.
Leader: Alan Tyldesley
