Ride report by Simeon Orme
Five of us met at the car park on the race course at Cartmel with Peter Thompson from York travelling the furthest to get to the start, from Cartmel we headed through the lanes to the Tearoom at the South Lakeland Nurseries for our morning café stop.

After our café stop we head up the B5278 to Haverwaite where we followed national cycle route 20 to Greenodd where Peter’s free hub pack up with few cable ties members of the party mange to patch up his hub so he could ride his bike back to Cartmel, after saying our goodbyes to Peter we carry on to Greenodd, from Greenodd we followed various lanes up the Crake Valley via Penny Bridge and Spark Bridge to Nibthwaite Grange, where we followed Bletherbarrow Lane up the fell side, it soon turn into very nice track. After about mile we stop for some lunch beside the track and then after lunch we followed the track to High Ickenthwaite, where we join the tarmac for about 500 yards before following our next track to Oxen Park their quite few flooded sections on this track to cross! At Oxen Park we followed the road down to High Longmire then on through Bouth and Causeway End to cross over A590 then we headed through Haverwaite, at Low Wood we turn off the B5278 and climb up Brow Edge then enjoy the long freewheel back down to Cartmel.
