This ride is starting a little bit later than normal to allow for anyone who wants to take part in Parkrun time to do both.

Meet in the car park opposite Twentymans in Allonby. We will start by following the new cycle path, then, after a very short stint on the road turn right and follow Hadrians Cycleway.. Quite a flat ride but with the odd little undulation to keep things interesting. We will follow Hadrians Cycleway until we turn off for Newtown, the route then takes us through Holme St Cuthbert and Mawbray, where we will visit the Mawbray Cheese Shed for a hot drink, possibly a cake, and any cheese that you wish to purchase.

We’ll then return to Allonby via Salta and a quick road stretch before rejoining the cycle path into Allonby.

Although the majority of the ride is on quiet roads, the very short stint that we have on the main road can get busy, with cars going quite fast, so this ride is more suitable for those already confident cycling in traffic. Road surface quality varies on this ride, but is suitable for all bike types, and electric bikes are also welcome. What you will need for the ride: a roadworthy bike (we will carry out a bike check before we set off), a helmet, suitable clothing (please keep an eye on the weather forecast and dress appropriately), spare inner tube, bottle of water, snack, and some money to buy refreshments. As with every Breeze ride currently, if you are required to self-isolate or have Covid symptoms, please do not join the ride. If you sign up but later have to cancel your place, please do not worry about it, things happen and sometimes plans have to change, I just ask that you cancel your place on the website, even if it is short notice, so that we are not waiting for anyone who may not be able to attend.

First-timers welcome!
