KDCS Ride Sunday 11.2.18 10am Staveley - Wilfs cafe


The weather forecast as of today Thursday for Sunday suggests there will be around 1cm of snow with a temperature of a max 1 degree Celsius.

 I intend travelling to Staveley with a view to starting the ride but I may have to modify the intended route. Please note that the route from Sadgill back over to Kentmere proposed in my original route is only really suitable for mountain bikes or chunkier tyres on road / cross bikes.

 There is of course the option to reverse the out route to avoid that section ( either back over Potter Fell road or passing that turn and taking the loop round to rejoin the back road to Staveley. I also intended to put in the loop right of Barley Bridge passing Littlewood farm and Craggy wood before joining the back road out of Staveley.

 This ride is billed as a winter wonder and it may well live up to the title. Please note there are no refreshment points on this ride so bring your lunch and a drink.
