Starting from the southern part of Threlkeld where the old miners cottages are
The ride will be a trip down St John's in the Vale, and alongside the shore of Thirlemere, returning via the same route.
We will do a bike and clothing check, some warm up exercises, get used to being on our bikes and how to use our gears and brakes, prior to setting off
Optional tea stop on the way back (this and the intro are included in the total time, so this may be shorter if group chooses not to stop)
Postcode is for quarry as starting on un-named road - participants will be emailed details
It’s a good idea to bring some water, snack to keep you going and money for if we stop at a cafe.
Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part. If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then.
We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind.
