Lake District Weekend April 2014

I am pleased to announce the first Cheltenham and County trip to the Lake District. This will be an away weekend probably staying in the backpackers hostel in Ambleside. The trip is open to Road and MTB members. There is plenty of biking available for all and it will be good to join up in the evening and exchange tales. The general plan is as follows:

  • Friday 4th April – Drive up to Ambleside at our leisure after work, or in the morning if you do not have to work so you can get a cheeky Friday ride in.
  • Saturday 5th April – Main riding day with MTB and road routes. Get everyone together in the evening for a meal and drinks.
  • Sunday 6th April – Morning ride then pack up and come home

The cost assuming we stay in the backpackers hostel is £21 per night which includes a bed and self-serve breakfast. I suggest that we car share to get up there and Google thinks that it will be about £60 in fuel per car for the round trip.

If you are interested let me know on the club Facebook page or MTB yahoo group. I will coordinate the hostel booking once I get a feel for numbers.
