Senior Ride Out.

A Ride to Orton

Following the recce which was carried our recently I've made some changes to the plan for the ride out.

We will not be calling at Egglestone Hall as the car parking arrangements are unsuitable for a number of bikes - we are calling at the A68 Cafe instead.

Secondly, our destination for the lunch stop is now ORTON. Not enough places in Sedbergh will be open on Sunday - the chip shop is closed!!

I've attached two GPX files with the route, apologies but I haven't been able to convert them into TomTom format. The routes are also posted on the NAM Members Facebook page.

The route includes some fantastic scenery and good biking roads.
