Ride report by Simeon Orme

The eight of  us including new member Barrie, set off from the Kendal Leisure Centre, we followed our usually route through Kendal along the cycle track to join the A6. We headed up the A6 for about mile before stopping at the cafe at Morrison Supermarket for our morning cafe stop.

After putting to world to right in the cafe, we cross over the A6, then followed Gillthwaiterigg Road and then Garnett Bridge Road up to Garnett Bridge where we stop to watch some canoeists braving the waterfalls on the River Sprint. We then continue up Longsleddale to Sadgill, where we followed the track over to Stile End where we stop for some lunch beside the track. After lunch we continue down the Kentmere valley along High Lane, Lowfield Lane  and then down main valley road to Wilf ‘s cafe at Staveley .

After enjoying the delights of  Wilf’s Cafe  we followed lanes back to Kendal.
