After a promising start (well it wasn't raining), 4 tandems and 2 solos set off for a jaunt around the south lakes between High Newton and Ulverston. After an early coffee stop at the motor museum in Backbarrow the rain started - and then it rained a lot more! The ride was duly shortened slightly and lunch was taken in Booths in Ulverston. The ride back took us through Greenod and over the river Leven for afternoon coffee and cakes at Holker Hall. During the final short ride back to High Newton it nearly stopped raining (but only nearly)!
