Altitude Profile (149 ft to 942 ft)
Okay guys and gals. I'm leading the Coniston Classic Club Ride again this year. Starting out of Ambleside, I've chosen to do this ride on a Saturday for all those members that struggle to do Sunday CR's. If you haven't done this ride before, it's one you don't want to miss.
The ride starts out of Ambleside. We'll use quiet country lanes, rocky technical bridal ways and singletrack to complete this awesome Lakeland loop. The route has some excellent descents that will keep you buzzing for the rest of the week and climbs that will challenge leg power and skill.
Throw in a river crossing, riding through a lake,a bit of rock climbing and pot holing and you have one of the best club rides the Woollybacks do, in my opinion.
I'm posting early to give you time to secure you're passes for this Lakeland classic, no excuses The nature of the route is rocky so is rideable in all conditions with very little mud.
The pace will be relaxed with a short coffee/cake stop at Grizedale visitor centre.
Also (if the weather is good) we MAY do a short, flat detour into Coniston for a nice cold pint. The milage for this route is around 25mile with around 3500ft of climbing so for the newer members IT WILL be a relaxed pace.
Knee and elbow pads are recommended for this ride.
Can members PLEASE make sure they carry spare inner tubes (2 mimimum) if they are not tubeless.
The carpark is along the A591 on the right hand side as you come into Ambleside. It's a couple of hundred yards past Hayes Garden Centre. The charge is about £6-£8 I think. There is a lay bay just outside Ambleside which is Free but has limited spaces so if there are any takers for this dazzler of a ride then if cars are few we may park there but I will lead the way to there after we've met up.
Don't miss out on this ride. It has a bit of everything. You won't be disappointed.
