This is a tough little ride in the Lakes starting near Ambleside and is 32 miles in length with approximately 5500ft of climbing/descending.

It is not an easy ride even though it is fairly low level in comparison to some Lake District routes.

The ride goes through Claife, Hawkshead, Hodge Close, Tilberthwaite via Iron Keld, Elterwater, Langdale and Loughrigg.

Lights may be required due to the length of this ride at this time of year.

Meeting at 10.00am at Brathay

Dave, is this the route where Speedy Al came a cropper and had a ride in a chopper?

If so, great route and I'd love to go but can't make that weekend sad.gif
