The itinerary for this tour…

Thursday, meet early, probably 06:45 at MacDonalds Restaurant (Metro Retail Park) and drive to Keswick, stopping on route for a comfort break/ coffee. Bring a packed lunch with you and please make sure you are dressed in your cycle kit as we will start our ride as soon as we have parked in Keswick. The route is the classic ‘back of Blencathra’ to Hesket Newmarket (lunch) and then Mungrisdale, Castlerigg Stone Circle and back to Keswick for the night. We will be staying at Keswick YHA, all rooms booked are en-suite. Dinner will be at the hostel, another ample three course menu provided by ‘The Galloping Gardner(s)’, please note… only alcohol purchased at the hostel can accompany your meal. Don’t forget to pack a towel!

Friday, once again we’re off to The Newlands Valley for the morning ride, with a little time to shop/ browse in Keswick before taking lunch at Cafe West and heading back home. Arriving back at MacDonalds for around 15:30.
