LA February Tandem ride has been postponed from Sunday 9th until Sunday 16th February. Apologies for having to rearrange the ride but in view of the weather warnings that have been issued for Cumbria I feel that this is the sensible course of action.

We've had Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis disrupt our rides but next Sunday 8th March we are hoping for fine weather for our LA Group ride from Carnforth into north Lancashire. See the What's On for more details.

Festive Quiz

19 members from the Lancashire and Cumbria Group took part in our Festive Quiz organised by Simon and Hayley.  Surprisingly, we all found the bike logos round quite difficult!  A great time was had by all and a big thanks to Simon and Hayley for organising it.  Lockdown Tiers permitting, we will get back together in early 2021.  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

What a great day out we’ve had today in South Cumbria. Great company and fantastic scenery. We had 7 tandems today on what was an absolutely glorious day out. Keeping 7 tandems socially distanced in 3 groups to comply with the current restrictions and not losing anyone was a challenge in itself, but we managed it  We had two new couples (new to the Lancashire and Cumbria Group) join us today plus the added bonus of meeting a long term member at our coffee stop. She had set out at the crack of dawn to meet us on her solo, on what turned out to be a 50 mile ride for her! Great to catch up with old friends. And the fun doesn’t stop there. We’ve another group ride to look forward to, in two weeks, on Sunday 9th May starting from Great Eccleston Square led by John and Anne. I’ll put out details next weekend.

Stephen Webb2021-05-10 15:04:20LA

We had another superb club ride on the Fylde and into the Forest of Bowland over Harris End led by Anne and John on Sunday. 8 tandems, 3 members on solos, and all socially distanced in groups. The weather was kind too! So good to get back out cycling as a group. We've all missed the monthly club rides. Next month's ride starts in Kirkby Lonsdale on Sunday 13th June.

The ride starts in Kirkby Lonsdale and we will head to Barbon and along Barbondale and over into Dentdale.  Coffee in Dent (9.5 miles).  After our mid-morning coffee stop we head up the valley to Cowgill, cross the river and return to Dent and via Gawthrop to Sedbergh for lunch (23 miles).  The afternoon stretch takes us along a quiet lane to the west of the River Lune which we cross again at Rigmaden, then along Between Gates Lane and High Lane into Barbon (Optional coffee/tea stop, 33 miles) before returning to Kirkby Lonsdale (36 miles).

Waddington Fell 44 miles (July 2020)

Meeting Point:  Scorton Picnic Area - accessible either via J32 or J33 off the M6.  Parking is free and there are no restrictions.

Route: Heading east from the start point for a long climb up the back of the Trough, worthwhile for the magnificent views before dropping down between Whins Brow and Top of Blaze Moss to Dunsop Bridge, this will be 'exhilarating' as it touches 25% gradient.  Coffee at Puddleducks (12 miles).

After coffee the route continues east to Newton where it turns south for Waddington Fell which provides a further 2.5 miles of glorious ascent.  The good news is that once at the top, its 2.5 miles of downhill with great views of Waddington, Clitheroe and Pendle Hill.  Waddington for lunch.

From Chipping it’s toward Barton then head north and parallel the M6 back to Scorton.

Stats: 44 miles, 3200 ft climbing, the vast majority of which is in the first 20 miles
