Lakes Weekend 20/21 March

11 of us made it to Whinlatter on Saturday to ride the challenging Altura north and south loops. Here we are at the highest point on the south loop. Grey skies slowly brightened and the cloud lifted, so we did it again after lunch. Check out the video below of one of the climbs – I was always too busy enjoying the descents to get the camera out. You can see a map and more details at http://www.forestry.gov.uk/alturatrail
7 of us stayed over at the Stybeck camping barn with refreshment and food ably supplied by the King’s Head Hotel 1/2 mile away, although the very nice barmaid had a bad case of dropsy! The skies cleared completely and Sunday morning started bright but chilly. We headed north, then over the Old Coach Road which was quite a climb. Over the A66 to coffee at Mungrisdale then on to Mosedale where we headed west on a (just) ridable bridleway to Skiddaw House. From here there is a brilliant descent all the way to Keswick where we picked up the old railway to Threlkeld then the B road back to Stybeck, just about before the rain started. We all enjoyed the variety – trails on the Saturday and bridleways Sunday. Come and join us at Delamere if you fancy going off road.

Club runs are back in the calendar for our members and new riders who are looking to join.
