‘The Glorious Hartside Summit’ Chris Armstrong will lead the ride on Wednesday, 5th August.
Meet at Route 59 Cafe, BD236AF from 09.15 for a 09.30 departure. Martin Pettitt is the tail end Charlie. Be prepared, this is a good long ride of 183 miles with a fuel stop of course. Enjoy!
The first stop is for coffee at Kilnsey Park (BD23 5PS). We then head for Brough and the sublime B6276 to Middleton-In-Teasdale for lunch at the Tees’pot Cafe (DL12 0QB) which I have booked us into.
After lunch we ride another “belter” of a road the B6277 to Alston and then the A686 to Hartside Summit where we stop to enjoy the views, weather permitting.
Because it’s a long day I have put in a short stretch of the M6 South to Tebay at J38 but made up for this by going on the A685 and B6257 to Ingmire Hall and the A683 to Kirkby Lonsdale where we will have a short stop and then head back on the A65/A59 to our finishing point the Route 59 Cafe. HMG and IAM guidelines limit us to six . Please telephone me on 07960 116166 if you wish to join the ride.
