Join us on the second of two rides on this weekend in the Lakes, designed to take in the best of the autumn colour in this stunning part of the world. Some of us will be staying locally, options include YHA Windermere as well as plentiful hotels or B&Bs. Please see the comments page for the first event here.

On this ride we'll do a half day, low level route finishing at lunchtime, this will be either around Coniston Water and Windermere or around Grasmere depending on what we did on day 1, and the weather. We therefore suggest you download all of the suggested routes in advance:

Pace and Terrain

All on road, not too much climbing, but with poor road surfaces in places and lots of slippery leaves!

The event pace and route is designed for road bikes rather than hybrids and is aimed at those who are reasonably bike fit, however the day is intended to be an outing rather than an endurance test. We will stop for slower riders to catch up whilst going faster in between stops to allow them to develop their technique and fitness. Broadly, anyone who has recently cycled over 30 miles and who has tackled some steep hills without too much difficulty will be able to complete this ride.
