Breezy Ladies B2B (Back to Basics) Early Autumn Packed Lunch Ride

This is a gentle beginner's "packed lunch" ride for Ladies only to also including E-bike lady riders with a fully charged battery.

We will start from Adsa's car park at Dunmail where we will join the NCN route 72 towards Workington town centre.
We will dismount and walk through the town centre underpass one-way system until we reach the Christ Central church where we can "mount up" and continue along our route.
This next section of the ride will be totally traffic free travelling along the cycle way past High Harrigton & Distington, from here we will carry on along the cycle way until we reach Lowca Play area.
This is where we will have our alfresco "bring your own" packed lunch.

After our snack stop we will retrace our route from Lowca with only one hill climb on our way back, (which can be easily walked if you felt daunted), & as Breezy B2B ladies we are always "willing to wait" and never leave anyone behind.
On our return to Workington we will be able to ride through the underpass and along to Navvies Bridge where we will continue on the cycle way back to our start point at Asda.

There are no toilet facilities along this route but there are at our start and finish point within the Asda superstore.

Please bring with you a road worthy bike, your helmet, clothes you are comfortable cycling in, (easy to remove layers work best), a waterproof jacket, as the weather can change quite quickly, a cold drink for along the way & a snack if you'd like one for our alfresco stop.
A spare inner tube that fits your bike is required as is a hand pump with the correct fitting for your inner tube valve, (just in case).
This ride is led by an experienced British Cycling Breeze trained coach, so if you need any advice or help starting or getting back into that saddle for this ride just message me on the conversation tab below.
