STW Howgills ride, Sunday May 31st – Interested ??
Following the last few STW rides we have done (and bloody brilliant they were too) we are sorting the next one out for the classic Howgill’s loop.
Meet in Sedbergh for 9.30 look to be riding for 10am. RELAXED pace, plenty of chatting, plenty of stops. From memory I think the route is about 26 miles or so with a reasonable amount of climbing involved.
OK I know its 4 and a bit weeks off, but as its getting into (hopefully) summer, I thought I’d post it early so people can sort out day passes etc.
So who’s interested ?Posted 9 years ago

Right then so worse than Belmont ascent in the wind …defo bringing my walking shoes

Am I allowed to attend or will someone chuck their teddy ?
PS yes it’s a hard climb, but when you get to the top you realise it was more than worth the effort just for the view, never mind the longest section of non trail centre singletrack in the north ahead :o)Posted 9 years agoloweySubscriber

Lol…. that was Toss, however, it was only at the half way stage of the climb!!
Joking apart, yes it is a bit of a climb to start the day, however the views provide ample excuses for frequent stops.
It really is a cracking route.Posted 9 years ago
just looked at SFB’s route map – his piccies make it look like a long but steady climb, the type
I eat forthat eat me for breakfast ……
the profile diagram says otherwise…..
all I can say Ton is that’s one heck of a sprout portion 😯 can only hope it’s more sherry than trifle for the downhill 😆Posted 9 years ago

Don’t forget to drop me a line if you fancy an STWalkers paced ride around these parts / pint in t’Riverhead.. 😀 infact I have to confirm the one for this Saurday, when I last posted there was interest from half a dozen or so….Posted 9 years ago
