    The route is now sorted – Sunday's recce was exceptionally wet – the ground is unlikely to dry out much this week so expect mud on some bits.
    Roughly the route goes over Smardale Fell, loops back to climb over High Dolphinsty into Mallerstang, up onto The High Way and back to Kirkby Stephen – 25 miles.

    There is no cafe or pub on the route.

    There is a big car park just off the main street HERE and the post code for the town centre is CA17 4QS. Meet at 9am for a 9.30 start

    Post up if your coming so we have an idea of numbers – and then the cake bakers can get to work πŸ˜€

    I do hope the weather is better than yesterday!

    The Dumfries posse could be as many as 8, I`ll mail round and see.
    Without looking at the map is most of that covered by Landranger 90 or 9? Or does it go off the OL southwards?

    Cheers

    G – From Metcheck

    we are then watching some very unsettled conditions to sweep in by Sunday with heavy rain and severe gales developing…

    Mind you when I looked yesterday it was wall to wall rain – now it has it stopping about 12 – still windy though. Plenty of time for it to get worse πŸ˜‰

    Bring on the gales and cloud as myself and Trekster got 'blown off' πŸ˜€ on his 'Blue Pig' demo day in the Peak a few weeks ago. As long as we have a 12.5 mile head wind to start follwed by a 12.5 mile tail wind we will be ok! πŸ˜†
