Hello everyone. Following on from the Dales Dash, so well supported last month, while we were out I was asked if I had any other similar rides you could try, well, yes, this one hasn't been run for a while, and uses 5 of the passes in the Lake District, and passes the only lake therein. So here's the explanation :

Only one body of water, Bassenthwaite Lake, is traditionally named a lake. Larger bodies of water in the Lake District are generally named as mere (Windermere) or water (Haweswater), whilst smaller ones are denoted by tarn (Blea Tarn) etc.

We will use the following passes to make up the day out : Pass of Dunmail Rise, Whinlatter Pass, Kirkstone Pass, Honister Pass and Wrynose Pass, and we will pass the only lake in the Lake District, Bassenthwaite Lake on the way round. The route is 200 miles, so be prepared for a long day out, we'll finish at Devil's Bridge at Kirkby Lonsdale

We'll meet at the Texaco filling station at Broughton crossroads at 08.45 for a 09.00 set off. Please ensure you have a full tank, as petrol stops are very scarce on this route.

Lots of sections on this run are challenging, so please do consider this before deciding to join the run.

Thank you, hopefully see you on the day, Mark.

Location 506-508 Garstang Rd, Broughton PR3 5JA. 08.45
Texaco 506-508 Garstang Rd, Broughton PR3 5JA
