This year's ride out of Appleby-in-Westmoreland saw 7 Tandems and one solo cyclist meet up at Appleby rail station. Unfortunately our leaders, John and Alison couldn't make the trip so the honour fell to John and Ann. I won't mention how many times the map came out but a successful day ensued including morning coffee at Culgaith, taking in the stone circle 'Long Meg' (including a free lecture by John), lunch at Melmerby green and village bakery where Geoff and Elma turned up for a social. We thoroughly enjoyed the Cumbrian countryside and luckily the rain held off for the majority of the 37 miles. Even when it did occur it was only fairly light so by the time we finished at Croft Ends Farm, we were quite dry. Thanks to Dave, Lynn, John and Ann for once again providing tea and biscuits which was most welcome.

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)!

Once again the ride started from Anne & John Hall's house in Blackpool, calling at Lytham for coffee and the Plough at Eaves for lunch before returning to Blackpool for well deserved tea and cakes. The weather Gods was not too unkind although it was the usual mixture of wind, a small amount of rain and even the sun made an occasional guest appearance between the clouds.

Leaving the Kendal Leisure centre we headed to Staveley for coffee at Wilf's café and a quick nose into Wheelbase for spares. This was followed by another short jaunt to Bowness-on-Windermere for an early lunch. By the afternoon the weather started to improve with the sun coming out while we made our way south east through the Lyth valley. At Levens we returned home to Kendal via Sizergh (omitting the tea stop!).
