Satruday's Light up the Lake Ride

The ride will go ahead on Saturday – little more info for anyone considering joining. Not a regular weekend ride folks! (so if you need some real cycling – why not cycle to Windermere earlier? If Windermere Ferry is not running for any reason, we will move start to Ambleside Rugby Club. (There is little reliable info on-line as to whether it’s running, except checking the ferry cam- thanks to Bill for this tip J) I will be heading over earlier (with car – let me know if you need anything take over) – so if you want me to text you to confirm ferry’s running – please let me know! We’ll head off from start when we get off ferry, and meander rounds west of lake – Sawrey/ Hawkshead/ Wray etc. Aim will be pop lights along the Claife track from about 4 pm, and either have picnic tea at Claife viewing station before trying to go along the route and enjoy our lighting effect or after depending on how the weather’s doing and people’s return plans. I will bring along some vegetable stew & warm up if anyone would like. (possibly not in my pannier thoJ) We’ll need to sort picking lights up before heading off. Options to join ride at 1.30 – or just come along later for the lights / picnic bit – Obviously it would help if I have an idea if who might come along – and please do bring along fairy lights, tea lights in jars, glow sticks etc. Thanks Jo
