Ride report by Simeon Orme
After meeting Brian, Barrie and his son James at the Denny Beck Car park, we headed through Halton and followed the lanes through Over Kellet,Capernwray, then up the Keer Valley to stop at Docker Farm for the morning cafe stop. After putting the world to right, we followed the lanes through Docker, up to Dalton Lane which is the main ‘B’ road between Kirkby Lonsdale and Burton-in-Kendal, has James had started to flag has it was first ride with RSF, he and his dad headed for home in Burton-in-Kendal and later in the day rode back to Halton to pick up their car!
Brian and myself followed Dalton Lane for short distance towards Kirkby Lonsdale before following the lanes through Hutton Roof where we join our first track which we followed through the hamlet of Whin Yeats, stopping for lunch on the side of the track, where we had find views of the Lupton Valley.
After lunch we continue down the track, we stop to watch a deer for few minutes on the track head of us before we carry on down the track to Town End Farm, where we followed Puddlemire Lane down the valley before crossing Lupton Beck via the ford at Lupton. After crossing over the A65 we headed up Crabtree Lane and followed the track over Scout Hill before heading back through the lanes to Kirkby Lonsdale for afternoon cafe stop.
After our cafe stop, we followed the B6254 back to Halton.
