About the event
As it is a Bank Holiday weekend and the Lakes are going to be full of numpties & other tourists, I have decided to avoid this area. As such, I am leading a ride out in to the West Yorkshire moors & valleys.
We will be starting by the petrol station at Morrisons in Kendal. We will then head up over Buttertubs and on to Reeth for breakfast.
We will then head up through Stanhope & Blanchland and on to Hexham, where we will grab a spot of lunch and maybe a bit of a stroll round the town.
After this, we will head to Alston, over Hartside and down to Lowther Castle for a final rest stop & refreshments.
I will end the ride here as I need to be back for visiting friends for the evening (yes, I do have them).
At approximately 140 miles & 4.5hrs riding (plus stops), we will be meeting for an 08:15 briefing with the aim to leave at 08:30. Weather forecast looks good with sunshine & clouds with a slight chance of occasional light showers.
Please register your interest on the website and turn up with a full tank & empty bladder. Look forward to seeing you all there……
