BIG Halloween 2019: Lancashire Cycle
1 people attending
11 places left
It may be cold out, but that is no excuse not to go cycling.
Join Will on a 70km cycle around the south Cumbria/Lancashire region including the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As the route is planned by Will, there will be compulsory cake and a pub lunch. The route has 700m of ascent which isn't that much compared to some of his rides.
You don't have to be signed up to BIG Halloween to join us, come for the day, though to be honest why wouldn't you come for the weekend, it will be great fun.
It's autumn/winter, so please be mindful of the weather, if there are floods, I most certainly won't be cycling, I'm a fair weather cyclist and proud.
Proposed route is here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31264258
If you need a gpx file, let me know, don't go paying any subscriptions, it isn't necessary.
